I'm unclear on what exactly metacity is. Can it be run inside gnome? If so,
where do I run it from.

Jup, works.

Because it's just a patch to metacity, that shouldn't be necessary.

Compile it and install it. Or, as i do it, compile it and then run
./src/metacity --replace, as it seems to be slower than the 'original'
metacity ;)






PS: The extra functionality is on alt+tab
