[Blueprint desktop-lucid-compiz-effects] Review compiz effects that are enabled and available


Blueprint changed by David Siegel:

Whiteboard changed:
  To try proposed compiz settings for Lucid (your settings will be
  exported and saved):
  $ bzr branch lp:compiz-settings-lucid
  $ cd compiz-settings-lucid
  $ python compiz-settings.py
  Work items:
  [djsiegel] define new comiz settings, file per-plugin bugs describing changes: DONE
  [seb128] update the compiz lucid package to use dsiegel's settings: DONE
  [seb128] write code to backup the user config on upgrade: DROPPED
  [seb128] write instructions on how to restore a configuration: DROPPED
  rickspencer3 2009-12-01: I seem to recall that seb128 volunteered to do
  the necessary work to make this happen for djsiegal. Please adjust if I
  am wrong.
  rickspencer3 2010-02-09: seems that the last two work items are not
  necessary. If users have set Advanced in their Appearance->Desktop
  Effects panel, the update should not modify their compiz settings, as
  the user is no longer using the defaults. If the user is on Normal, then
  they cannot modify the defaults, so will get the new defaults. A user on
  "Advanced" can select "Normal" to get the new defaults.
+ djsiegel 2010-02-10: Rick, sounds excellent. Also, we did not move to
+ 2x2 workspaces so cube should still work like a charm on "Advanced" ;)
