Does KDE really support XRender?

	I have this question since several years ago.
Since the hottest feature of XRender is "real" tranparency, that means the 
tranparent object can reflect the activity of the covered program.
I tried to google the information of KDE and XRender as much as I could, but 
none of the web sites answer my question.
	Even Trolltech.com itself announces their Qt has build-in XRender support. 
However, when I enabled the menu with "XRender Blending" via kcontrol, and 
tested a little bit, I found that the transparent menu has no different with 
grapping the image.
	I know it's an old question but I would like to ask again. Does XRender 
support true transparency or KDE actually never use the feature of XRender at 
	I heard that the next version of XFree86 (e.g. 4.4) add some features from 
AppleWM and Darwin. Does that mean we will see some effect like Aqua under
