the day the design mockups for the ui i see stop having alpha transparency is
the day i make this unimportant. until that day, your "i don't care about this"
is the kind of opinion that i also am not interested in, because i am being
shown ui designs hat REQUIRE it in the long run between windows, and in the
short term is being faked with software within windows. i am just trying to
make something possible that is being requested, and has been for a long time.
not just say "i don't care".
