OK... this is my and Rick's fault... (Rick had a bug, and I wavered on whether 
I liked it, decided I did, and propagated it to legends.)

In any case, lets go ahead and move legends and labels to George's intended 
behavior, which is for transparency to only refer to the background and not 
the border.

When this is done, I will modify the UI to reflect this.
