I hope they start thinking about creating a real pluginstructure instead of exposing all internals to plugins. This would allow for a standard for plugins, so beryl and compiz could share the plugins with other windowmanagers. It's also better for securty, right?

(if they already did this, I'm sorry, but afaik they still expose their whole app to plugins, effectively making it impossible to reuse the plugins anywhere else)
