Unity3D fullbright shader with transparency

With all the comments in there, this thing turned out to be half a tutorial on the workings of a simple Unity3D shader. Nothing here that you can’t find in the manual, but the comments may help you grasp the interaction of all the different parts a little better.

Shader "Custom/FullbrightTransparent" 
		// This gets you a color picker in the inspector
		_Color ("Main Color", Color) = (1,1,1,1)

		// This gets you a texture picker in the inspector. Supports textures
		// with alpha channel.
		_MainTex ("Base (RGB) Trans (A)", 2D) = "white" {}
		// These tags do:
		// Queue=Transparent: Render this object as part of the transparent queue, after all opaque objects
		// have been rendered first, and renders in back to front order.
		// IgnoreProjector: This object is ignored by projectors, useful for semi-transparent objects.
		// Rendertype: Enables alpha transparency rendering for this object.
		Tags { "Queue"="Transparent" "IgnoreProjector"="True" "RenderType"="Transparent" }
		// The Level of Detail property defines what hardware will be enabled to render this material. Lower
		// LODs enable cheaper/less-capable hardware. More complex shaders get higher LOD values.
		LOD 200

		// Disable z-writing, so rendered pixels are not occluded by this object.
		ZWrite Off
		// Set the specific alpha blending state. There are several states for different effects 
		// (http://docs.unity3d.com/Documentation/Components/SL-Blend.html)
		Blend SrcAlpha OneMinusSrcAlpha 

		// This pragma tells the shader to execute the 'NoLighting' function as the lighting model,
		// instead of the default 'Lambert' or 'Phong'. Use the 'NoLighting' function for full-bright
		// objects, or replace it with 'Lambert' for more common lighting.
		#pragma surface surf NoLighting

		// These declarations enable us to use the inspector's color an texture as properties in the 
		// shader functions.
		float4 _Color;
		sampler2D _MainTex;

		// The input structure defines that we will use the texture-coordinate properties of every
		// vertex that is passed into the shader (you can enable position and per-vertex color data as
		// well, if your shader uses that.)
		struct Input 
			float2 uv_MainTex;

		// This function is the surface shader. It computes the surface properties for every surface
		// that is rendered with this shader. This function operates at vertex level.
		// @param IN The Input information for every vertex passed to the shader. Contains the texture coordinates
		// @param o The output structure that contains the surface's final color information.
		void surf (Input IN, inout SurfaceOutput o) 
			// We retrieve a texel (using the tex2D function) from the texture (_MainTex) at the passed UV coordinates
			// (IN.uv_MainTex) and store the color in c.
			half4 c = tex2D (_MainTex, IN.uv_MainTex);

			// Multiply the texel color (c.rgb) by the inspector color (_Color) and store as the diffuse component of
			// the final surface color (o.Albedo).
			o.Albedo = c.rgb * _Color.rgb;

			// Copy the texture's alpha color (from the alpha channel) and store it as the surface's final surface 
			// alpha.
			o.Alpha = c.a;			

		// This function defines the lighting model. This specific implementation strips all lighting information
		// to make all rendered pixels full-bright (useful for in-game pickups/glows and the like). This function
		// operates at pixel level.
		// @param s The SurfaceOutput information from the 'surf' function.
		// @param lightDir The light's direction we can use to calculate light-surface interaction with.
		// @param atten The light's attenuation factors (attenuation is complex, outside the scope of this shader. Lots
		// of information on the webs).
		fixed4 LightingNoLighting(SurfaceOutput s, fixed3 lightDir, fixed atten)
			// Declare the variable that will store the final pixel color,
			fixed4 c;
			// Copy the diffuse color component from the SurfaceOutput to the final pixel.
			c.rgb = s.Albedo; 
			// Copy the alpha component from the SurfaceOutput to the final pixel.
			c.a = s.Alpha;
			return c;
