I'm not talking about transset. I'm talking about real transparency at
the application level like gnome-terminal does. That's what the patch
fixes. transset works on the toplevel window and alters the alpha of
it - including the frame. It's meant to be used on applications that
don't understand alpha and don't have options like gnome-terminal does.
You really don't want or need to use transset on gnome-terminal.
