[MBS] floating overlay window

i'd like to make a transparent overlay window which is always
floating over a part of another window, but keep the other window
activated. i succed making a transparent window.
but if i make it a plain box, it moves behind each time i activate
the main window.
i can keep it in front if i make it a floating window, but then i
have a the border and the title bar of the floating window not
transparent.
how can i have it transparent just over its parent window? (ideally,
also only floating over it's parent window and not the other ones.

Check the Overlay Window examples.

They don't get focus and they can be attached to a window or go on every
position on screen.
