Just wondering before giving an approval: what are the plans in the
future wrt to this? Do you plan to keep this option? Or do you think we
can have a better solution?

I believe it only affects the terminal, but there are mentions of other
apps in the bug, so I'm a bit lost here. Was it because users were still
using an old metacity with the first buggy version of the strict mode?

(I'll probably send a 2/2 anyway, since there's no reason to keep
something that everyone will patch out)
