Many xterm programs offer a pseudo-transparent mode, in which they do
exactly what you mentioned, using the root window image as the xterm
background.  Recent releses of rxvt offer such a feature, and I'm sure
that there are others as well.  It's too cool a feature for there to
not be!

You might check for a copy of their latest development

I hope this helps.
