Well, it is really just the version checklist you see when the release
goes out: comes with the latest Gnome, X, KDE, ... 
I assume that list is assembled anyway, without tracking every single
new version as a feature, with all the added overhead that it entails.

And I really don't think FESCO need to vote on compiz-fusion as an F8
feature.
