I'm not entirely sure what is needed for transparency to work. If it
requires only little tweaking then I'm sure we can patch it in 0.35. At
the latest it will be in 0.40.
Yahoo widget support is scheduled for 0.41 (IIRC). We first want a
stable 0.40 architecture. And there is no definitive timeline.
Starterbar should work if it does not use sensors. Anyway it will be
quite easy to get it working if it does not work directly.
