How to modify rotating desktop image options?

I have a *lot* of cool desktop images that I rotate through with the standard Mac rotate settings. Often, I accidentally skip over a bunch of cool images when trying to FF over a not as cool image. What I'd desperately like to do is be able to say "OK, start with THIS image and rotate from there."

There's tons of articles on how to change your desktop image to X, but that's not what I'm looking for. There's also examples of using command line arguments and Applescript to modify the System Preferences, but (1) I wasn't expert enough to successfully modify the examples, and (2) they still don't influence which is the "current" desktop image in a rotating image set.

If anyone knows any way to influence the "current" desktop image in a rotating set, I would be so grateful. As a bonus, it would also be cool if I could set the rotation speed to be different than one of the preset options, e.g., "every 4 hours".

Thanks everyone,
- Jeff
