Scott - the main issue is the second one you've mentioned, below, 
although it would be more accurate to say 'using transitions behind a 
fixed foreground'.  I'd like for the fixed foreground to be transparent, 
hence the introduction of the custom window shape idea.

Dr. Hawkins also suggested the groups idea which I can try, although now 
that I think about it that might be a little complicated since it's my 
users, not me, who populate each card with objects.  I'm also 
considering snapshots of the entire screen and transitioning from one 
PNG to the other while maintaining the same fixed group of objects in 
the foreground.
