[Mono-winforms-list] transparency and translucency

Can linux handle transparent and/or translucent windows ?
By transparent, I am talking about a window that can have 'holes'
By translucent, I am talking about a window that can fade in/out, blending
with the desktop background.
Also, by translucent and transparent, I am talking about applying partial
opacity to certain areas of the window.
Can we do that here on linux ?
I have written a new UI toolkit for my company - because I am not completely
happy with the MS implementation of a few controls - , and among other things
I re-wrote a complete menu class that looks like the Outlook 2003 menus, with
I have written a *lot* of user controls under c# and could contribute some of
my experience. But if linux (or X11) doesn't handle transparency and
translucency for a window, then it makes no sense for my to contribute here.
