Here are my current twm improvement patches, organised thematically:

        [...]

(3) Introduces twm menu and iconmanager (and icon) transparency,
introducing two keywords:  MenuOpacity, IconOpacity (in range 0 =
transparent ... 255 = opaque).  Effectively it will be compiled in only
if set '#define TWM_USE_OPACITY'.  It adds no complexity to twm as it
only sets the "window opacity property" and as long you don't run
something like

   xcompmgr -c -o 0.5 -r 6 -t -6 -l -9  &

in the background, this has no effect on anything.

I found two keywords the only solution as menus and icons have too
different transparency values in order to configure them with one
keyword.  I have  "MenuOpacity 245" and "IconOpacity 200" in .twmrc.

This one is X.Org-specific as it relies on an extension not provided by XFree86.
