Sorry, I dont't get it. How should this clearing work? Make the window
transparent? Or is it just different colors you want to set at runtime?

Obscuring things is definitly a problem, thats why dzen has autohiding
facilities now. See the README for details.

What is not implemented until now, but is on todo for the next version,
is sane signaling. I guess it would be nice to hide/unhide multiple dzen
processes with a key combo, that way you could build an autohiding bar
out of a couple of dzens.
