I think the current implementation of the print plugin is fine, i.e.
generate the PDF with opaque images. If someone needs to have a PDF with
images with alpha values, it would be possible to write a 'save-as-pdf
plugin' similar to the print plugin that uses also gtk_print_*
functionality. I think that even layers could be embedded into the PDF. I
could (try to) write such a plugin.
So, there the question remains whether someone would use this?
