lately there have been sufficient complaints about the limitations of XFree86, especially lack of transparency or inability to add shadows, etc.
i would like to propose the creation of an X module that could provide transparency and possibly layers to XFree86. it should be written in C so that bindings could be created for any language. i would love to see kstyles and gtk+ themes that take advantage of such a module.
if you're a C coder and would like to work on some 'rockstar code,' please give some feedback, and a project could be started.
