##' This function transforms a standard color (e.g. "red") into an
##' transparent RGB-color (i.e. alpha-blend<1).
##'
##' This only works for certain graphics devices (Cairo-X11 (x11 as of R>=2.7), quartz, pdf, ...).
##' @title Generate a transparent RGB color
##' @param col Color (numeric or character)
##' @param alpha Degree of transparency (0,1)
##' @param locate Choose colour (with mouse)
##' @return   A character vector with elements of 7 or 9 characters, '"\#"'
##'  followed by the red, blue, green and optionally alpha values in
##' hexadecimal (after rescaling to '0 ... 255').
