} aterm isn't really "transparent" they are using the same thing that

I KNOW that. Okay, call it pseudo-transparency. Sheesh. :)
But the ETerm folks *need* Esetroot. A big fat ugly memory hog, in my
view. Aterm doesn't need any kind of setroot now to run very well, as
of 0.4.0. (Before, without a setroot, there were some rather disturbing
scrollbar issues but the pseudo-transparency was still there).
} an X Server written in Java w/ "real" transparency, notice that you
} can see windows under other windows.
Yes, yes, yes, know all about it, think it's a bad idea. But that's
just me, the 'Java for stuff other than web applets and toaster ovens?
<twitch twitch>' person. I just want to see the background. I don't
want to see other bloomin' windows.
