You're right about the internal code freeze, although I think beryl should
probably go in to unstable so we can start getting the packages out there.
According to Shawn, who's maintaining it for us, it's not stable enough to
release with Etch though, so seeing it there is pretty well out of the
question. The current set of beryl packages are in good shape, and are
sitting in our svn repo, although shawn hasn't finished packaging emerald
yet, which appears to be the missing piece.
If we're going to ship xorg with aiglx and composite enabled by
default (actually i dunno really), beryl in etch and in default
desktop environment (just listed not enabled by default) would be a
huge win, maybe it's too late now. I would like to point out this
My opinion is based as a beryl user in an ibook with 'heavily'
customized Debian and not so customized Ubuntu (just needed to push
beryl from 3rd party repository).

I don't know what cgwd is either, but I don't follow beryl at all at this
point, so I rely on Shawn to teach me those new acronyms. :-)
I guess this is somewhere in emerald (part of beryl) source. Btw,
we're talking about window decorators here.
