I am opposed to that kind of enforcement. I think the best way to handle 
these kinds of situations in general, is by creating better alternatives 
and then educating the users.

However, an acceptable compromise would be to remove Unity from ccsm. 
Since Unity currently seems to be the main attraction to ccsm, this 
might solve the problem without creating any problems for other Compiz 

That's my tuppece.
