Translucent windows (or drawables) are a nice to have feature
allowing users to create non rectangular shaped things on the desktop
and a more seamless integration w/ the desktop.
This is possible using compositing window manager like
Windows 7/Vista Aero, X11 XRender/OpenGL KDE, Gnome, etc ..
Initial X11/GLX support is commited:
Also the little changes to the 'core' code:
Translucency is triggered just using the Capabilities:
TODO: Windows and OSX .. maybe Android
as noted .. works already for NEWT/X11
Adding Windows (>= Vista ?) translucency support.
Works on MacOSX and Android as well - closed.

It seems translucency doesn't work on Windows 8 nor Windows 10 (they removed Aero effect in Windows 8 AFAIK). Tried with NEWT.
