Well, I get, I get some bad results, we can use Glx features that dont works
for me because we have two X11 windows for any control, the second option is
to inherit our paint background to draw parent backgrounds and emulate
transparency, but it is slow and a ugly implementation.

Maybe we can just enable it in XGL systems and check the transparecy problem
with out "control inside control".
