Change OS X Login Background Pic

It took several attempts before I found a method that works. In Tiger you were able to do it with a simple change to a plist file, either via a text editor, Apple's own Property List Editor, or by overwriting the file itself with a new file that happened to have the same name. In Leopard, only the manual file overwrite works, and you have to do it as sudo.

Enjoy! Because nobody wants their computer to look like a backdrop for a late-70s Journey video.
