    Transparent drop targets

      From what I can tell, you must use a backgroundColor on a container that will be a drop target. A workaround for needing a transparent container is to set the alpha attribute to 0, but any children you drag into the container will be invisible as well since they inherit the 0 alpha setting.

      My layout is like so:

      * a Tile of image thumbnails that are draggable
      * a large, "outer" canvas with a background image
      * smaller canvases inside this outer canvas that should be transparent so as to see the underlying background image

      The dragging and dropping on the inner canvases works fine except for the fact that they disappear when dropped - all because of the 0 alpha setting.

      Does anyone know of a workaround or a totally different way of achieving this effect?
