metacity: Yet another window manager for the GNOME project1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Sun has decided to drop Sawfish in favour of Metacity for its release of GNOME 2.

This decision has been based on issues such as accessibility, maintainability of the code, documentation, multi-head support and a general eagerness from the community to commit to Metacity.
