I touched a bunch of the opacity code in the core while adding the
opacity matching options. It was pretty bad and it's still not that
good. I think that moving the opacity increase/decrease functionality as
well as the new opacity matching code out from the core would clean it
up and it seems like a good idea. Lets start with that and we'll see
what else it makes sense to move out later.

(I'm still trying to decide if we should have the workspace switching
options in core or not... which is why that patch is not in yet.)
