Why bother when both the GNOME and KDE projects already have excellent
window managers?  I don't understand this idea of writing a whole new
window manager just to add eye candy.  There's nothing about compositing
that requires a complete rewrite of the window manager.  The effort
would be far better spend simply extending the existing support for
compositors in metacity and KWin.  Realistically, compiz is unlikely
ever to be accepted by either project, because it's a chimera.  So why
are we dumping so much effort into it?
