    Or it is supported at the toolkit level and most applications won't even notice the difference. As long as nobody else can be bothered to write a compositor for it, which is likely the case, as long as it is supported at the toolkit level it generally shouldn't matter all that much. And it seems they are planning to handle the toolkit support themselves.

    That is not to say I think this is a good idea, but I don't think the problem with be application support. I do think that application developers will be less than eager to handle bugs from Ubuntu if they are using radically different underlying technology.
