Tell me about the blue jeans young people wear these days - the kind with the big white blotches.

Are these what's known as acid- or stone-washed jeans? If not, what's the correct term?
I realize the desireablity of broken-in jeans, and the dorkiness associated with a brand new pair.... but in my experience, they usually go white only at the knees, and the seams. This current fashion - what's with the fading on the back side? And sometimes, not the legs, but the seat - I'm especially baffled about the fashion sense of someone who'd choose to look like she's been sitting in a puddle of bleach.
