Is metacity or emerald used when desktop effects are enabled for
Gutsy? I don't see either in `ps ax` (but I do see compiz.real).
Also, a cool thing about that screenshot (and vista's translucent
chrome) is that there is a heavy blur applied to the translucency. It
makes the text on the title bar much more readable.
