jbarnes on IRC mentioned perhaps it would be a good idea to turn compiz plugins into some sort of Freedesktop API specification so DEs can share plugins?
What do you think?

Thank you David. I wonder if any KDE folks on this ML can comment about having compiz plugins work for KDE4's changes to kwin.

How could this best be shared between the KDE and GNOME camps? It would be nice if the plugins could work on both DEs thus allowing people to focus on writing plugins rather than GNOME or specific KDE interfaces?
