Thank you. That gets me a step closer, now, the question still stands if I
can make the world background transparent? I want to be able to see and/or
interact with things 'behind' the squeak environment, to turn off the
background and ScreenController, and just have what I want out there. Is
that possible with squeak as it stands now?

If by this you mean to make the windowing system's titlebar, etc. disappear,
ScreenController new fullScreenOn
and to turn it off:
ScreenController new fullScreenOff
This is also available from the button that says "Escape Browser" in the
