Ok, that makes sense.

Unfortunately, I've looked at the stable branch, and really can't figure out how to change the
level of transparancy. Does anybody out there know enough about how it works to give me
some pointers? I'll just recompile the RPM I'm using once I make the changes.

have when it finally goes stable.
