i have reverted these changes, given that David evidently isn't going to.

in fact, there was a new commit today that withdrew the public API bits (which 
is good) but completely failed to address any of the actual design issues 

David, plasma is not a place where you can simply shove code through simply on 
the merit that you have an svn account. we work together, towards consensus 
and try and keep things focused and on-track. there was discussion about what 
would be workable (a colour wash behind the transparent versions of the svgs, 
drawn from the theme config itself), and if you wish to implement that please 
do so (though please follow the coding style guide; we use the kdelibs coding 
style in libplasma).
