As per Elaine's suggestion, I've changed the command from a boolean (set bgTransparency true/false) to the set/~set paradigm ("set" to turn it on, "~set" to turn it off).

It will call the setBackgroundOpacity() routine in chimera/printer.py.  Until that is added you could use a little Python script transpbg.py:
