Compiz can basically be used in KDE and Gnome as a selectable compositing 
and window manager. In my opinion it would make sense to join KWin's, 
mutter's and the Compiz' compositing engines. KWin and mutter could then 
be implemented inside Compiz. But typical these projects have problems in 
sharing code. Reinventing the wheel again and again seems cool ;-)

After the next Oyranos release I would like, among other projects, to 
abstract out some of the plug-in functionality into libXcm. libXcm targets 
at delivering some basic functionality and helpers for display colour 
management. That should help KWin, mutter and other projects to easier 
support the net-color spec.
