Hi

After discussing it with JP and Cyberorg, here's a list of actions that
will be done, so please add your comments:

* gnome-xgl-settings will disappear, the hardware database thing will be
moved to simple-ccsm to enable/disable GUI when the graphics card is not
supported.

* my patch to the appearance capplet will be moved also to simple-ccsm,
there will be a check box to enable/disable compiz (if the graphics card
is in the database), and if ticked, the rest of the GUI will be as it is
now.

* gnome-xgl-switch will be moved to xgl, probably with the hardware
database also?

with this, we cover the compiz config from within the desktop. For
enabling xgl, users would need to run gnome-xgl-switch (or xgl-switch if
moved to xgl package), thus this will work for both KDE and GNOME
people. The best solution would be to have the enabling in the X
configuration, but it's probably too late for this, so not sure if we'll
have this (discussing with the X guys now)

so, any comments?
