Fully transparent taskbar?

somebody has ripped off the superbar for windows xp except that in xp it's fully transparent and i think it looks better. is there anything to make the ACTUAL superbar in seven fully transparent?

what do you mean by fully transparent?

the stripes and end blurs can be removed, but i don't think anyone has figured out how to remove the blur yet...

You could try

Transparency - Enable Full Clear Glass Transparency

but i'm not sure if it works for the taskbar. It should do as it's all glass

we've already got fully transparent windows courtesy of Brink , the only problem with that is it's either FULLY clear or it isn't. so a fix for that so the user decides how see-thru he wants it it wouldn't be a bad idea

anyway, i want it for the superbar and start menu like this guy wants.
