I'm pretty certain someone posted a change set back in late 2000/early 
2001 that did just that -- it turned the background transparent, 
so Squeak windows (morphs) show up looking like they are OS windows.
They don't show up in the task list of course, but you can see and 
manipulate stuff behind the windows...
