Bug Description

The new unity8 stopped supporting custom background in session (on phone form factor at least). The rational seems to be that wouldn't work well with lenses/was impacting on the readability on their content.

We need an updated design since it doesn't make sense to have 2 images in the panel in that case.

Note that the greeter/lockscreen image is still customisable so the panel is still useful.

Is there a definitive answer on whether we are getting backgrounds back
or not?
