Aww, back together again

Aww, it is nice they are considering getting back together again. I had read previously that the developers of both compositing engines didn't see eye to eye over design decisions. It is a good sign when people learn how to compromise and can work together.

On a bad note with Compiz I tried to use it with Limewire and the UI doesn't work. I don't think Java Swing works right under Compiz. I had to go back to good, stable Metacity so I could use Limewire again. Bling is nice but posibly stability is even better?
