I have been looking into this and some devastating who did cm7 for other devices like the incredible were able to make this possible. I saw a zip with 100% 75% and 50% transparent.

I really wish I was a Dec and could do this or I would. Is there anyone out there that can pull this together? I would be more than willing to test for you

It does all the heavy lifting for you. As long as you can use the find function in a text editor you should be fine. You'll only need to change one line, and it will tell you the line and what to change it to. Once you've done it it will give you two update.zips, one to do the mod one to undo it.

I have not been able to find one. I have searched the market and the theme app. I have not been able to find one. I think I actually found one that was labeled as transparent but it did not work

The cm7 themes with transparent statusbar rely on this patch. In other words, this patch wont make ALL themes transparent, but will enable the ones that support it to work properly. Otherwise they'll just "ghost".

Yes, some themes for Cyanogen do have transparent status bar. Most of those themes, you have to pay for.
