Adding Alpha values (Opacity Sliders) to WP_Customize_Color_Control?

Does anyone know how to make the WP_Customize_Color_Control accept rgba() alpha values or is there a way to extend it so that It can?

The default color picker of wordpress does not support this. Check out this article http://pluto.kiwi.nz/2014/07/how-to-add-a-color-control-with-alphaopacity-to-the-wordpress-theme-customizer/ . It requires quite a bit of knowledge and skill level.
