At a minimum, getting things like this running does require:
1. An X server that supports the Composite extension
2. A compositing manager running to blend the windows (which may be
part of the window manager)
3. A window manager that provides proper support for windows with ARGB
4. An application that achieves the desired effect by selecting an
ARGB visual and rendering the desired shape into the alpha channel.
