Untouchable Background

I have a background image that's the same dimensions as the card. How does one
prevent such an all-encompassing background group from being touched by any
editing actions on the card?

In other words, how does one make a background invisible to the pointer while
still allowing *all* normal pointer actions on the card (as in a HyperCard
background)?

By normal pointer actions, I mean, for example, that you can click directly on
the background without selecting it, you can click on the background to
deselect card objects, and, most important, you can initiate a marquee
(marching ants) directly on the background to surround and select card
objects.
