I have just enabled compiz-fusion, because I usually don't use it...
and I have these issues:
- keyboard super key currenty isn't properly setup (and I have Cherry
Linux keyboard with tux on super key :) )
- some plugins don't work even if they are enabled
- shortcuts overlap and start some other effect that ones I setup in
CompizConfig Settings

These are some minore bugs but still show that compiz and
compiz-fusion on Fedora needs some polish compared to other distros
that ship compiz and compiz-fusion that JustWork for users.

I'm wasn't sure that fedora was even looking to enable compiz, and now
that I see it will I'll go and test compiz and compiz fusion more and
submit bugs in bz.
