Inkscape EPS export with alpha/opacity/transparency support


Is there any way to export Inkscape illustration to EPS with semi-transparent objects (fill color opacity set somewhere in the middle)?

Inkscape tutorials claim that EPS does not support transparency. EPS10 seems to support transparency and Adobe Illustrator users can export files with transparency. Any chance that I can do that in Inkscape as well?

Hello, sorry for bringing this thread back to life.
I hope this helps someone.

The settings I use on Inkscape for the EPS are these:

"Restrict to PS Level: PostScript Level 3
Output page size: Use document's page size
Bleed/margin : 0.0

Never use halos, gradients etc. The image has to be solid, no opacity less than 100%.
Never mix vectors with bitmaps in the same image (PNGs, JPGs etc).
Avoid using fonts.
