Example:

# both the fill and stroke will be at 50% opacity
pdf.transparent(0.5) do
  pdf.text("hello world")
  pdf.fill_and_stroke_circle([x, y], 25)
end

# the fill will be at 50% opacity, but the stroke will
# be at 75% opacity
pdf.transparent(0.5, 0.75) do
  pdf.text("hello world")
  pdf.fill_and_stroke_circle([x, y], 25)
end
