Found another bug in #1505. My change ignored the alpha kwarg, this patch fixes it.

It also updates the way line color is handled (so alpha can be specified via kwarg or via a 4-tuple color), and updates the test to catch (I think) all of the permutations of marker, line, 4-tuple and

@tacaswell tacaswell Fixed code added in 0c20b5c
(PR #1505).

Tests added is #1663 pass with this patch.
@tacaswell tacaswell updated the way the line color + alpha is handled to match how it is
done for markers.  If a 4-tuple is passed in, the alpha from that will
be used, with the kwarg alpha over-ridding it.
@tacaswell tacaswell Updated the alpha/translucent test to also test lines and a mix of
setting alpha via color and via kwarg

I mean this makes the tests added in #1675 pass.

It looks like this commit broke something. The following code snippet worked in 1.2, but fails in 1.3, and I think it's due to this commit.

>>> from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
>>> plt.plot(range(10), color='none')

Note that this came up here

Yeah, this is the broken line. It assumes that the ln_color_rgba will be index-able, but _get_rgb_face() can return a None.
