Of course there is a difference. The module would always be in sync with kwin 
as it is released at the same time. That is something we cannot ensure in 
kdelook or extragear, only in the SC. Btw KWin doesn't crash when there is a 
bc issue as kwin just does not load incompatible effects.

You might notice that the kwin maintainer started that thread. So we are quite 
aware of the implications :-)
