Hmm, changeWindowOpacity(), increaseOpacity(), decreaseOpacity() have nothing 
to do with painting stuff, i think.

changeWindowOpacity() isn't defined in compiz.h, compiz works really well if 
you remove it ... Who need to change opacity by hand? I think nobody...

That's why i think it should go in a plugin and have nothing to do in core... 
If few people need this, it should go in a plugin...

You can't use compiz without close/maximize, it's not the same.
But i think that all the "run command" stuff may go in a plugin for exemple, 
you don't need this to use a window manager...

I may be wrong ;) and will be happy to have David behaviour about this.
