Bug Description

Hi all compiz people.

We at hypra are preparing a desktop, based on debian/mate, aimed at providing maximum accessibility for impaired people.
We use compiz, for visual features related to visual impairement.

We humbly present our modest contribution. We added vertical and horizontal mouse guides to the showmouse plugin. It was a feature request from one of our clients.
With this, the user can set the number of circular emiters to zero, and add thickness to the bars. When activated (mod4-k), compiz can draw the circular emmiters, the guides, or both.
the attached patch is applicable to current master, and has been tested on ubuntu-mate 15.10

I've had the chance to talk to several gnome-desktop people, and i've also talked with didrocks at FOSDEM. We'd hope to continue working on compiz, and are currently bringing it back in debian, with ubuntu as upstream.

We are of course listening for any request from you, regarding coding style, legal issues, beer drinking, whatever.

Hi all,
just wondering whether anyone had time to look at this patch?

Yeah, sure... I just missed this because we generally work by checking Merge Proposals...

Can you do one or should I do that?
