    it shall be noticed that Kwin has an agenda to push with SSD's, since it implement features (such as beos-like titlebar-tabbing of windows from different applications) that actually need to be done in the server

    but OTOH, it would be necessary to retains SSD's, both for compatibility with existing applications (/application that being linked to current versions of GTK and Qt -not supporting CSD- may not be binary compatible with updated libraries) and to support those generic applications not needing the ability to visually merge (something that has to be done client side) the titlebar with the menu and/or toolbars and/or MDI tabs...
