I considered that, and that would really be the easiest, but ...
- I want people to be able to download (and possibly packagers to package) the 

- in order to do that I actually renamed the pluggin names to oxygen-
transparent (and the style/deco to "Oxygen Transparent"). 
This was not the case in the past (where oxygen-transparent would simply 
overwrite your official oxygen, but thats really not good (my idea at that time 
was that oxygen-transparent would get merged back to trunk/master at some 
point, but this will not happen). 

now I don't think you want a "branch" of official code that installs pluggins 
with different names ... and different libraries, etc.
