But it became less and less usable... even in 3.4 now... many minor bugs
that have accumulated and which you Debian maintainers probably cannot
fix all since due to the amount of work/effort needed.

Due to some nasty bugs in whatever component of GNOME (I guess it's
metacity), -fallback is for me personally only usable at all with Compiz
(which has been dropped already)...

So to me the classc/fallback frontier seems to be a rather dark field...
it's nice that you guys try to keep it working in Debian, but quite
apparently GNOME upstream wants to ultimately get rid of it, and that
*will* happen sooner or later.
