  Description     : manager for on-the-fly transparency changing in X

transset-df is a program that allows the user to change window 
transparencies on the fly.  Supported methods include using window 
manager hotkeys, 'select by pointing' without actually clicking a window, 
and selecting by name and window id.  transset-df is a modified version 
of xorg's transset and requires compositing to function.  It is meant 
to allow a windowmanger-independent way to support transparency.

I have been in contact with the upstream developer, who has expressed
interest in bringing transset-df into debian.  Unlike transset, it has
had releases in 2005, 2006, and 2007, and is still being slowly
developed upstream.  The developer is willing to explicitly provide a
better license if the public domain parts license is deemed unacceptable
for Debian.
