Oh man, I thought you were joking. I don't think this is a good idea, for a
number of reasons:

  - most applets still look like total arse on transparent/pixmap/colour

  - icons on the desktop will sit under the bottom panel and look 'clipped'
    or disappear altogether (depending on the size of the panel)

  - weird invisible stuff is a bit confusing for new users, whilst it is
    cool eye candy action for users who know what they're doing - thus, it
    ought to be turn-on-able rather than on-by-default
