My problem generally with these things:

 1. chromakey does not seem to be able to do half-transparency,
    it can make it fully the full color, without alpha...
 2. alternative approaches make the half transparent areas
    a lighter green color.

I have tested reroute and chromakey. I might have over looked that the 
source layer I am working on was RGB24 and not RGBA. So it might be 
required that such plugin first does a pixel format conversion.
