For an FFE this description is too vague to do a sensible decision on it. How intrusive will that be? How many packages are affected, does it involve an ABI/API break/library transition, how much new untested code, and how much was the new stack tested on actual hardware?

That being said, this is a regression compared to Maverick, so it should be fine (still interested in above details, though).

answers in order of asking:
- libunityshell changes but since it exports no external API/ABI there is no worry there
- between 1000 and 2000 new lines of code since wednesday last week
- I wrote it on actual hardware, its being tested by the touch team on more actual hardware

Thanks. Please go ahead, but please do try to get it into beta-1 for widespread testing.

fixed in 3.6.8, bug status wasn't updated though so that the script picks it then.
