Agreed, anyway, I would wonder what the patches behind the transparency
are, so far I've seen only big words and some (awesome looking)
pictures. That's not enough. And I also have some doubts as to the
implementation mentioned in the blog entry about which this thread
started. I think having apps to enable/disable real transparency is the
wrong way. It should be enabled in the gtk + gtk theme engine + window
manager combination. Adding even a single line to each application to
enable transparency is IMHO dirty and leads to inconsistency throughout
the desktop.
