I have a program that is resident on my desktop, and a section defies the transparency settings the program provides. I've set the font to a nice subliminal gray, but the icon, albeit small, is still distracting. I imagine programming a section of the desktop to show in grayscale and then hidden when an active window opens. An easier way might be to just create a slight increase in transparency in the set area. The icon is 16X16 and might not even be noticed when the active window opens over it. Would this be a worthwhile project for the programmers there? Would I be the only beneficiary? The program tells me my todo lists, etc., but could be useful for system monitors I've seen on some desktops, or a weather program with a stupid smiling sun, or something like that.
