Module proposal: Mutter

 Mutter is a window and compositing manager that displays and manages
 your desktop via OpenGL. Mutter combines a sophisticated display engine
 using the Clutter toolkit with solid window-management logic inherited
 from the Metacity window manager.

 While Mutter can be used stand-alone, it is primarily intended to be
 used as the display core of a larger system such as gnome-shell or
 Moblin. For this reason, Mutter is very extensible via plugins, which
 are used both to add fancy visual effects and to rework the window
 management behaviors to meet the needs of the environment.

Target: Desktop Release Set

 No dependencies beyond current GNOME modules and external dependencies.
 Note that Mutter currently depends on Metacity being installed for 
 GConf schemas and other data files.

Resource usage:
 source control:  git://
 bugzilla:, mutter product
 Mutter packages exist for most major Linux distributions as part of
 packaging GNOME Shell. Mutter is also key component of the Moblin 2.0
 and 2.1 releases.

GNOME-ness / community: 
 Since Mutter is derived from the Metacity code base, it should interact
 ideally with existing GNOME components and takes advantage of many years
 of bug fixing and development.
