    I meant, it would be useful for Opensource development if, for some important pieces of software, there would be a shared interface, maybe with a different implementation.

      It is only the first draft, let's wait to see happens.

        Oh no, that's no fun. It's much more entertaining to get a fledgling project going (Compiz), start bickering on IRC and listservs about minor functionality and direction, fork (Beryl), go a half of a year and then kiss and makeup, then spend another year merging the changes back in (Compiz Fusion).

        Open source needs it soap operas. We need the existing development model!
