Yes!  I'm using XFCE from Extras on FC3 and am very happy with it.

Whatever customizations you've made for metacity will remain with
metacity.  However, its quite easy to configure XFCE to do almost
everything you can do in metacity.  And XFCE does a lot of stuff that
you simply cannot do in metacity including, for instance, configurable
window edge resistance, the ability to raise windows above the top of
the screen, etc.
