We now have a compiz-kde pacakge that has the kde-window-decorator and
the GNOME specific bits are split into compiz-gnome.  As for
configuration tools, I'm thinking that they can be packaged up as
separate RPMs and people can pick the tool they prefer.

I'm not planning to make the compiz rpm obsolete the beryl rpm, but
upstream, the two projects have merged and I don't expect the fedora
beryl rpms to see much activitiy.

I don't know, there may be, if there is something usable out there we
can add it to the compiz-kde package or the appropriate parts of the
KDE packages.
