This is one of the benefits of using transparent keyboard :-). Although
the transparency itself is not very fast, there is no need to resize the
application window when displaying/hiding the keyboard, so the overall
responsiveness is much better imho.

I implemented the transparency for qwo (and it was discussed quite a lot
here). Afaik nobody made it usable for the illume keyboard so far, but
it shouldn't be hard to do it...
