> not really possible - not without grabbing the screen. not going to be doing those hacks. you will get trans when finally we do compositing in e18 or e19 (and xcomposite etc. is ready for use). when that happens the existing design will work perfectly and "just work" (tm). we wont have to REMOVE hacks.

I believe Anders want to simply not display desklock's bg, ie, have
the desktop showing, and have it locked, like the first version of
desklock. So we would simply have to not display the desklock bg.
