No, because this is something that is handled by the host operating system's window manager... Hollywood can't do anything about this.

You might be able to get the effect you are looking for by using a custom background that has a transparency built in (see the AlphaApple example).

@PEB: Good idea. Using the alpha-transparent display detour would even be a way to implement this in Hollywood but I won't do it because it's too much work for too little gain :)
