Another reason to drop it (conversation in #compiz)

2010-09-01 18:03:30	coz_	td123,  if you want more emerald themes you
should probaby go to  gnome-look.org and download them
2010-09-01 18:03:46	td123	coz_: I'm more interested in the status, I
don't use it :)
2010-09-01 18:03:57	td123	coz_: why would anyone want to use it
2010-09-01 18:04:30	coz_	td123,  :)   well it does have a few nice
options but it is essentially badly coded ... I believe someone tried
to rewrited in for compiz ++  but I have not tired it
2010-09-01 18:04:45	soreau	td123: No one has worked on it for a long
time now and it isnt supported at all officially
2010-09-01 18:04:56	soreau	It just happens to still work
2010-09-01 18:05:07	coz_	td123,  a long while back ...a new decorator
was discussed for about 15 minutes :)
2010-09-01 18:05:40	coz_	td123,  but right now gtk window decorator
and kde4 window decorator are essentially all there is
2010-09-01 18:05:52	td123	ok, thanks :)
