Dunno. I called it grayscale because I created it from a grayscale PNG file,
so probably it's R == G == B in the pixbuf.

Got it, thanks. I had the composite part down, I was basically wondering
if one of the functions in gdk_pixbuf could do the first part (iterating
over C to modify A's alpha for me). I will write my own.

Thanks again Havoc.
