[compiz] Compiz 0.8 branched

I just branched for 0.8, since Danny told me there was no reason not to.

There are still some bugs to work out of course, but since development has
been quiet lately, I figure it's time to branch so that we can:

1. Eventually get to the next stable release
2. Allow people to work more freely on master

On my personal list of things I want to see working better before a 0.8
release, I have the crash-on-quit with nVidia. I know there are a couple of
similarly grievous problems.

We need to triage our bugs. On freedesktop, we have 126 bugs in state NEW
or REOPENED, and on opencompositing.org, we have 61 in NEW or REOPENED at
the moment (for compiz, not compiz fusion). So if you have some time, start
at either list and triage. The important part now is to close/move bogus
bugs and mark the relevant bugs for 0.8.0 that needs to be 0.8.0. 

Of course, this underlines a tiny problem we have; two bug trackers. The
freedesktop one doesn't offer target milestones or versions that match our
own, and I'm not sure it's reasonable that it should. We do have the one at
opencompositing doing all this. I'm sure the observant reader can see where
I'm going with this. Any thoughts on this? Always triaging two bug trackers
is a bit of a hassle.

For the record: I have not branched Compiz Fusion.
