- Draw on the root window.
- If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

- How long to wait before starting over. Default 5 seconds.
- -random boolean
- Whether to ignore the foreground/background colors, and pick them randomly instead.
- -offset integer
- The maximum random radius increment to use.
- -ncolors integer
- How many colors should be allocated in the color ramp (note that this value interacts with offset.)
- to get the default host and display number.
