Wow, thanks a lot Canonical for handling this the right way!

OT: Does anyone know whatever happened to David Reverman, the original compiz and Xgl developer? I haven't seen anything about him for years, did he just fall off the face of the earth?
Nobody from community. And only for Ubuntu releases.

Canonical employees still maintain Compiz, still test it, still provide bug fixes (Unity till 14' at least will use Compiz, so they will care for it! Also with regard to performance.)
