Far from it: do not try to use transparency effects (I did, and had
really bad surprises there, when going to the print shop).

One year ago, xpdf printed warnings in the console when it fixed the
xref table.

Btw, does pdftex now support PNG transparency when included by
includegraphics ? Does it even depend on pdftex (I am quite sure, but
only quite, not positively sure).
