The background section of the theme.xml can use several tag to control
the layout of your buttons.

buttonarea -  Controls the physical area for the buttons. (Required)
buttonspread - Controls whether myth spreads out the buttons to use
all of the available space.  (Optional, defaults to yes)
buttoncenter - Controls whether or not buttons are centered.
(Optional, defaults to yes)
columns - Controls the maximum number of columns. (Optional)
image - The background image to use (overrides the one in the qtlook file)
visiblerowlimit - Controls the number of rows that can be on screen at once.

So...  In order to position a series of buttons over a background
image so that they appear to be part of it you would need something

<background style="normal">
