Here's a heart felt thank you from one person for avoiding this.  :) 
However, that seems to apply more to e.g. the panel changes.  I'm
curious about the joint window-manager/compositing manager ("compiz")
you were working on as it sounds like duplication of Soeren's work and
something that largely wouldn't be affected by the bike shed stuff, at
least not if the work & discussion were restricted to the core gl part
excluding plugins.  I'm not trying to come across as accusing, I'm
just wondering whether there was duplicated effort and if so whether
there's a possibility of merging now or if we have a real fork for
this particular part of the desktop.
