Active wallpaper

 I am interested in a feature on Android phone where the wallpaper on
the phone is made active. It should be able to display things like
pending RSS feeds, unread messages etc. Does anybody know of any work
that has been going on this area.

Also any pointers that people may have on what I should look into will
be welcome. BTW, I am not really looking for widgets, I was a text/
image layer to be rendered on top of the wallpaper before the rest of
the home screen is painted.

 Such a feature is not planned. The biggest issue is the impact on
battery life and security. Home has quite a few permissions and you
don't know random apks to be able to do random things inside Home.
