Basically I think the config option means "test out beta window
manager and X server" - at the point that we think the stuff really
works and is not just a beta, the config option is silly.
I guess that's kind
of what "Desktop Effects" is for compiz.
There might still be options for whether to have drop shadows,
transparency, etc., I don't know, but we wouldn't have an option for
whether to use the COMPOSITE extension.
I'd kind of envision Desktop Effects on -> compiz, Desktop Effects off
-> metacity with automatic compositing (or a minimum, non-customizable
set of compositing operations that the user wouldn't consider
I don't think it ever makes sense to have two compositing managers
available in the UI each with overlapping / different toggleable
Or were you suggesting make Desktop Effects on -> metacity with iain's
cm, and Desktop Effects off -> metacity with no cm (and compiz just
taken out of the picture) ?
