Any good method of achieving a frosted / cloudy glass look, where light is transmitted through, but you cannot see clearly through the pane?

You can add color inside the glass node, or you could add a 10% (or so) grey surface shader, or perhaps an extremely tiny displacement/bump will scatter light so it seems frosted. Something like that.

Thanks, Dune, completely forgot about the glass node.  Initial tests are looking promising.  Might need a little perfection, but looks like it will be useful for my purposes.

Pretty soon Path Tracing will support transparency and frosted glass-type effects will be easier. No need for displacement there, you'll just increase Specular Roughness a good bit and it should give you a nice frosted look.
