Well if anyone is actually interested in Core Animation for Linux/X then
I'm sure somebody will pick up the baton and run with it. The fact that
there's a whole community of developers working on compiz, but only one
guy showing a passing interest in Core Animation, speaks volumes about
how low that level of interest is. Nonetheless, because it is (or will
be) Free Software then anyone who really wants to can work on it.

Maybe "Zek" could do it, since he doesn't seem to do much else besides
bitch about an OS he doesn't even use, much less develop for.
