Unfortunately no, that don't work out of the box and the copy method
don't have many chance to be add to compiz, maybe like dragoran say that
can be implement as a plugin?

There is a workaround, take a look there [1]on the Fedora Forum and a
temporary Xgl repo is available here[2].

Nice!, I have just see a little error, the path of the mesa libGL
provided by the fglrx package is /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 instead of
/usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2.xlibmesa.
