This facility depends on whether the underlying libSDL supports transparent windows. I understand it does not, so this feature will not appear in Löve for the time being, because Löve developers cannot implement it. A quick web search brought up some speculation on the SDL forums that this feature is planned for SDL 1.3, or at least was planned at some point.

In the distant future Löve may upgrade to SDL 1.3 for its backend, and the we will get this glorious feature. Possibly. Right now, though, the answer is simply: sorry, no can do.

(You may want to talk with the actual Löve devs about the future direction of Löve, since I can't speak for them.)
