ClickThrough and Opacity

Hi!
First of all let me congratulate for the great job with OnTopReplica.
I'd like to suggest a simple feature that could improve your nice program.
The basic idea behind it is that the click-through feature is useful, but what's behind should be visible at least in transparency. Therefore, I suggest to implement a second click-through mode that, once you hover the mouse, OnTopReplica window becomes translucent (possibly configurable, or else say at 30%).
Obviously the click-through mechanism itself does not change: the only thing I demand is dims the opaqueness of the windows as you hover the mouse in order to let you see what's behind - hence, the click-through makes more sense.

Thanks a lot for whatever you'll be able to do about this :)

PS: I am a programmer myself, though it would require a lot of time for me to understand where's the spot in the code such a feature should be inserted into. Maybe, if someone can tell me what classes or methods are involved in the click-through and opacity thingies, I might even do that myself. Thanks again!

Very nice idea, thanks for the suggestion.
I committed the feature right now to the repository, it will be included in the next version of OnTopReplica. :)

Thank you again. Cheers!
