Can "transparent" be added to the color palette?

It would be handy to have "transparent" as one of MapWindow's "colors," even if only for fills.

Instead of indicating a range of intensities by fading between black and white, for instance, we could from black to transparent.  This would allow lower layers to shine through the areas that are less intensely "colored."

The current layer-transparency option does allow for "shine through," but only if the intensity of all the colors on the layer are equally diminished, so that even the most intense color, the one we might want to be totally opaque, is forced to be partially transparent.
