When the pie menu is displayed, it adds a fuzzy white layer to the screen which is distracting and at least to me, actually causes some physical discomfort (perhaps akin to the red flashing issue with people who are prone to seizures), due to the discrete level shift in screen intensity, much as there is when a side chain or residue is highlited (also a problem)

I would appreciate it if you would provide a method for disabling the screen tweak as described (screen whitening overlay while pie is shown), as it is not just a trivial nuisance but causes me and possibly others *physical discomfort...

I took care of this. Not sure if the change is released yet, but it's done.
