As far as I know it's not much use until more of Cinnamon is added.
Why I didn't include more is a bug report I filed at upstream. As I got
no response it's up to myself to do some more reading into Cinnamon itself
to understand the way they build it. The first obvious attempts failed,
but lots of things I work on have a long history already.

We can only start to correct things at the foundation when we have the
architecture to realize it doesn't fit. Right now I believe that building
without errors is the best we can do.

Okay, thanks I'll send fixes within the next 7 days.
