See? It's just like I said:
It's something simple that I was overlooking AND was overcomplicating. =)

Thanks, Mikael - that switch works like a charm.

I knew about the "-sh" switch, but had no idea that setting the shading to 
99 or 101 would force aterm to use a different transparency method.

I knew what I needed, I just didn't know that *that* would do it. =)

I was wondering if there might not be an option that provided that sort of 
functionality, short of editing the source and re-compiling. =)

I guess not. ;)

Aw hell, now you've got me all curious about what it'll do. =P

Thanks again, Mikael. =)
