Dear All,

The below upload of ubiqutiy adds compiz as the supported window
manager during installation via Install Now option.
This means if on the CD no other ubiquity supported windows managers
are present compiz will be used as the last fallback.
In practice this means that metacity will fall off Ubuntu Desktop and
Ubuntu Nexus images as of next build with this ubiquity version
included. No other images/flavours should be affected.

Metacity will still be in main for a little way, the only thing that
holds it back is reverse build dependency of openjdk. I will follow up
with openjdk to see if it's possible to drop metacity dependency and
move it elsewhere (dep-8 / separate source package etc).



ps. I have fond memories of metacity.
