i'm having some suggestions for nodoka in the next fedora version.
My general idea for fedora is to have the themes polished in F10.
Nodoka can do a lot to get that done.

Oke for the first one.
When you hover a button or anything that's nodoka controlled like the
buttons: minimize, maximize and close. When you put your mouse on one
of them the image behind it is instantly changing to the hover state
(or something like it). My suggestion would be to make a effect of it.
Fade out the old one and simultaneously fade in the new image so that
you get some nice effects there. Also do this for every other thing
that has another state when it's selected, hovered etc.

AFAIK, metacity does not support it. Correct me if I'm wrong. It would
possible to make these effects of these using Compiz' wm but I have no
experience in this area and also compositing isn't currently working
almost nowhere in rawhide (you know, intel is broken a little, and
nvidia does not support the new Xorg yet).

As far as I know composite can work with 2D only drivers like VESA. IIRC xcompmgr wasn't particularly slow (though very unstable). I'm not familiar with the implementation of the Composite extension of Metacity, or what effects are possible with it. I however am more familiar with the implementation of XFWM4, and it is lightweight enough to be used with 2D only drivers such as 2D-only radeon drivers on R500 hardware (or radeonhd drivers) as well as VESA, with very decent a performance. But this isn't a discussion for the art-list, but for -devel and maybe Desktop. Just wanted to point out that you can have composite enabled by default with 2D-only drivers and have good performance.
