On IRC I said we'd be better off moving this to olpc-session, so the
Sugar codebase should stay clear of platform-specific support.

However, I noticed we also run the window manager from there and it
would make a lot of sense to keep the composing manager next to it.
Some modern window managers even do both things.

Perhaps these things should be moved to olpc-session?  Either way, it
 could be done at a later point with a separate patch.
