Current planning is that metacity will be updated for 5.6 with a couple of small fixes to the behavior of GConf preferences that were introduced in the 5.5 update:
* The new_windows_always_on_top preference should apply to windows that
aren't brand new, but are being re-presented by the application
* The no_focus_windows preference should not apply to windows that
belong to the same application that currently has the keyboard focus.
These small patches also need to be included for 6.0 to prevent a regression for customers upgrading from RHEL5 to RHEL6.
