IE7 must die

After getting fed up with IE6's lack of support for transparent pngs, we went ahead and wrote an image server that would take an image and composite it with a solid color background (meeting 99% of our use-cases).

I was so excited when I found out that IE7 would be support transparent pngs. However, apparently that support is not extended to transparent pngs that end up having an opacity applied to them.

Great. Just Great. So now we get to keep the image server, and if we want to start using it less for IE7 users, we have to make sure the urls we serve back are never going to have opacity applied to them. Way to go IE team....

Update: Yes, I am aware of the alpha loader filter, however its not an option for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to memory leaks, issues compositing images with the alpha loaded dx filter with regular images, etc.
