As I said, I'm not C/C++ programmer so I don't care about problems you
write about, but I'm sure that everything can be done.

Question is how much time it could cost to write and if there will be
anyone interested to take this job.

Maybe first I'll take a closer look to GTK theme engine attached to
librsvg... If we can draw GTK widgets with GTK there must be ability to
do the same thing with window decoration... maybe not with "full" svg
support but I think that we should try. (Right now I have theme-parser.c
in another window and I'll try to investigate how it could be converted
to support some svg standards).

Besides are there any plans to create some kind of web site for Metacity
project? (or maybe I ask this way - is there ability for me to create
such web site and place this somewhere in Gnome webspace?).

And more, are there any plans to enrich this window manager with some
additional and useful functionality or you consider this as finished
project and simplicity is it's main value?
