It is installed, but you'll need a compositing window manager (like
compiz or mac osx) to use it.

I've tried it, and it works, but it doesn't seem terribly useful in
practice -- afaict, it affects _everything_ in the emacs frame, not just
the background (and compiz, at least, can actually do that without any
emacs support at all)...


Conservative, n. A statesman enamored of existing evils, as opposed to a
Liberal, who wants to replace them with new ones.
