mind you I'm not a compiz developer, but I know this:
The libdecoration is a static library used to design window decorators
like gwd. This design decision was made to maximize code reuse for any
window decorator developed for compiz.
as for the "decoration" plugin it's still there and enables the
functionality for compiz to support window decorators. So please added
to you "active_plugins" list :-D
