Hi Dinu,

I am glad to see you are still working with our libraries after all these years!

I will give my traditional answer. If there were ten people on this
thread all saying "I want this badly" and "I am willing to pay
something", it would be worth looking into. But there is no evidence
of that and it is not clear to me what feature is actually missing...

Are you saying you wish that
(a) PIL could import and overlay transparent images?
(b) ReportLab could do it without any dependency on PIL?
(c) ReportLab could do it but maybe depending on PIL?
