Exporting transparent PNGs (again)

Hello again folks.
I recently posted a question about Rev's weird behaviour when
exporting transparent PNGs from fields with Japanese text. No-one
(understandably) was able to offer any help so, as is often the case,
I think I'll be looking for a workaround...
... Exporting non-transparent PNGs works fine so, in theory, should I
not be able to export the image (perhaps to clipboard or variable)
then apply this to a graphic as an alpha channel? Then export the
resulting image as transparent PNG?
So... two questions:
1) Does the above workaround solution sound feasible?
2) How the devil do I do it???!!
I've had a few half-hearted attempts at using the alphadata property,
but I can't get it to work at all! Can anyone point me to some
example stacks that use this property that I can dissect?
I'd be grateful for any suggestions!!
