I think it is a bad idea to change rgb-color here: this is a recipe
wide-reaching incompatibilities for the sake of limited applications.
make more sense to meddle with the type of the "transparent" property,
a boolean-or-number? for example.
If transparency is supposed to be made into a part of color, I think
rather be optional: see
<https://sourceforge.net/p/testlilyissues/issues/5162/#bd3f> for a
However, I think that transparency is really something that tends to
considerably different scope and application as color and is more

applied in manners orthogonal to color, so keeping it in a separate
might make for a lot less conflicts of use cases in the long run.
So [#5189] would be preferable to this. There would be way more work if
done that way. Alpha transparency is integrated with color in some
formats, such as SVG. Here, if using rgb-color, the opacity is optional
as it defaults to 1,0. There is also a convert-ly rule for changing rgb-
