Perhaps split the edje into two groups:

1) the box where the password typing is shown
2) the bg

And allow the user to hide the bg (option), and make the password box
show only when they start typing (also option)? That way it works just
like xtrlock until you start typing stuff. It would need more work
though, like when you press enter, or escape, the entry box is hidden
etc. so I wonder if its really worth it (=

At any rate, the easy way to do this is to provide the option to not
display the edje hence giving you the transparent xtrlock effect
you're looking for.
