Possibility of inclusion of a "kde-desktop-effects" version in compiz


Since beryl is sadly being removed from the repository, KDE users don't have 
the ability to easily switch from kwin to compiz and back again. The KDE-SIG 
was asked to write such a tool but after the confirmation [1] that compiz 
wouldn't obsolete beryl it hasn't become primary attention.

After the removal of beryl I've modified a script by Kevin Kofler so that it 
uses compiz-manager to switch between compiz and kwin. compiz-manager itself 
passed review today (but isn't branched yet). [2]

The switching script itself should go into compiz-kde and so I've modified the 
latest compiz.spec to include this. But I must fairly say that this is only 
tested by me.

My question is: 
Is it anyhow possible to include the script into compiz-kde and compiz-manager 
in f8final to enable KDE users to use compiz in an easy way (and also on the 
live images where possible)?

The tarball with the script and the patch for compiz.spec could be downloaded 
here: http://www.deadbabylon.de/files/compiz-kde/


P.S.: I want to ask this on fedora-devel first to get bigger audience.
