I don't have strong feelings one way or the other.  If it were up to me
metacity would simply be non-optional for Fedora.

But if you wanted to subpackage mini-wm and fix firstboot, I'd fix s-c-d
and occasionally look at the bugs for the subpackage.  And I'm happy to
tell people that it's not a real wm.
