      Maybe I should have been clearer: I don't think replacing the current
      transparency with a blurred background would be a good idea because I
      am guessing most people would agree with Ben on this issue (myself
      included). (To be honest, I'm not a big fan of transparent
      backgrounds as it is, although I do have "au FocusLost * set
      transp=10" and "au FocusGained * set transp=0" in my gvimrc.)

      However, if somebody wants to write a patch which optionally enables
      such a feature and if sufficiently many people want the patch merged
      and finally if it is a "simple" patch, then I will consider merging

      In my mind this type of feature is a little bit too much in the
      direction of the suggestion of being able to set a background picture,
      so its not exactly on the top of my most wanted additions. (I'm of
      course open to arguments to convince me otherwise.)
