do you understand what this option does? Do you understand how this will 
affect all users?

This is clearly a case of "we change the window manager without understanding 
how the window manager works". Please just stop your work on twin and just use 
the upstream KWin. We very well evaluate what are good options and we know how 
such a change would affect all users.

You have so much work to do, why spend it on discussing a default setting for 
a window manager? Just use what upstream does.
