When a pixel is fully transparent, it still might hold an RGB value,
though invisible. This RGB value can be retrieved if the pixel is
made opaque or translucent.
With this option enabled, this hidden color is written in a png file.
Else, the RGB value is set to the gimp context's BG colour, and the
information is lost. This allows for a smaller file size if the RGB
value int the transparent areas are not flat.
