E16 allows that very well, Raster may be despising FakeTransparency a lot, but
it was a nice trick back then & I use it everyday.
A Terminal as background, in e16:
E16 does offer individual settings. Above is a gnome-terminal set
as "below", "borderless", and with no shadows; in gnome-terminal settings
it's "hide toolbar", no scroll arrows (but you can scroll) & transparent
background. It uses the E remember feature after the proper name of the
settings in gnome-terminal settings, and only take "title" as target argument
(it will be the saved settings' title). From there, it will remember whatever
you see fit: location, size & such. Then there is a script to fire it up,
symlinked in ~/.e16/Start folder.
And Bob's my uncle!
Sorry if I made a show of myself: I really love this feature.
