I believe Thomas Thurman has been doing a great deal of work on the
compositor in Metacity, maybe that could be used - even if it likely
lacks all the wonderful features presented by Compiz.

I am pretty sure the one in Metacity now requires OpenGL acceleration.
I don't really think that is something that we can insist upon as a default
window manager.

I have a great 3d card in my desktop and I really don't need my window manager
spinning cubes and wobbling windows.  It was fun for about 2 days, then I had to
get real work done and all I wanted was windows redrawn smoothly and everything
else to just work.
