Oh, well.  Thanks.  What I'm actually trying to do is cheat and allow phone
apps to use the same tileable texturemap background as I choose for the
'desktop' without having to recompile their edj files each time I change
backgrounds.  I'm not looking for a 'translucent dialer app' effect but
more of a 'if the desktop is red then the phone apps are red'.   (but now
that I think on it, glass dialer buttons floating over a focus-blurred
desktop would look pretty cool;)
