setting a transparent color on a pixbuf for Canvas layering


This question came up today on perlmonks, and it
sort of piqued my interest. It concerned laying a radar
weather map over a ground map.

The idea was to layer the radar map over the ground map,
setting a background transparency on the radar map.

Well, I could do this with GD, as shown in the attached script
GD-transparency-add.  It has a simple 
to set green as transparent.

So I used this script to change the green section of zzrgbwb.png
to transparent, as zzrgbwb-gt.png.

Then I load that transparent overlay over a basefile of your choice
in the script transparent2,

Now the REAL question is "How to do this with Gtk2's pixbuf and Image

How do I take the non-transparent zzrgbwb.png , load it with Gtk2, and
make green transparent without resorting to GD?


I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
