Other Options

You can also set options such as TerminalOpaqueness in these files. Look for these tags:
<key>TerminalOpaqueness</key>
<real>9.000000e-01</real>

The tags should be in alphabetical order, but if you've never set this option the tags might not be there. If that's the case, just paste this tag in between these:
<key>StrictEmulation</key>
<string>NO</string>
Paste it here...
<key>TextColors</key>

The only caveat is this: Opacity is stored as a real number (Scientific notation...) and not a percentage. So, 75% would be 7.500000e-01 and 100% would be 1.000000e+00.

Of course, you could do the best thing and head over to Apple's feedback page and tell them you want some "quick, dynamic way of changing the opacity of my terminal windows!"
