Erm, lets walk through this because maybe /I/ have gone batty.

compiz-gnome obsoletes compiz that you have installed, but doesn't
Provide it.  compiz itself provides compiz.  How does that get
compiz-gnome installed?  And if it did, wouldn't you want to do the
same thing for compiz-kde for the KDE users?

How does 'and the gnome bits' fit in here?  Were all the gnome bits
already in compiz?  What about the KDE bits, were they in compiz too?
