This is very nice; my sincere thanks, both to Stephan (for
the lead) and to Heiko (for the hard work behind it).
A quick test suggests I need


rather than


and that I need to set and restore the transparency state
just before and just after typesetting the box containing
the graphic, but that apart, it worked like a dream once
I realised that it was a two-pass approach, and that a
change would not be visible until two successive runs
with the same parameters.
