do you know if the magnification API is going to be kept with / ported to AT-
SPI2? if so, then it would be possible to make use of that API with the kwin 
magnification desktop effect (when used as an a11y aid) and when AT-SPI2 
becomes available, nothing in kwin's code would need to change. but that 
relies on the magnification API remaining stable ... (which i hope it would, 
for the sake of other magnifiers out there)
