Looks good. Please commit the plane plugin as well but in a different
commit than the core changes. Remember to update the ABIVERSION in
compiz.h and add the new getVersion function to the plane plugins
vTable. But other than that, it's all good to go in.
btw, eventually I think we want to add support for multiple workspaces
as well but that requires a bit more work.
