Currently, mutter is a monolithic package which installs both mutter (the wm) and libmutter (supporting library). This is undesirable, as I have another window manager package that depends on libmutter (gala window manager, the new window manager for elementary OS/Pantheon desktop). It should be possible to install libmutter only, without the rest of mutter.
