I'd opt to this way instead of OpenGL for now.
Even this simple (yes/no) transparency feature would
bring massive improvement, because we could have
tiled raster images and stack e.g. WMS layers.
Eventually we might have to add an alternative rendering
based on OpenGL, but I don't see massice advantages correlated
to the work that needs to be done for that.
