    I would hate to disappoint you:

    WindowShade X provides an exciting and useful way of organizing your work on Mac OS X. With this handy tool, you can assign the following actions to the minimize button and a double-click on the window title:

        * Minimize the window to the Dock, like always;
        * "Windowshade" the window into a tiny strip to quickly peek below or get it out of the way;
        * Make the window transparent so you can continue working in it while seeing things under it;
        * Hide the application quickly;
        * Do nothing and ignore the action (sometimes it is quite useful as well).

    The load Aqua puts on the system is already very great -- it is generally regarded to be a very "heavy" window manager, requiring many graphics compositing calculations for the shadows, overlays, menus, and other transparency effects.

    What you are asking for would require literally billions of calculations per second as you move windows around. Imagine multiple Finder windows open with multiple programs layered on top of that... the system load would be intolerable without the very fastest Mac and graphics card available. Are you sure you want to do such a thing?

    hmm... well im thinking only because the few apps that do allow for transparency look so nice and really dont lag me... but yea i would like that (not the lag)
