Re: Desktop fade on logout

Someone mentioned on the list that it might be a good idea to move
metacity's reduced_resources key to /desktop/gnome/... so that all
programs can use it. So if someone sets it due to using gnome over the
network, or a similar case. it will disable all unnecessary 'eyecandy'.
