for enabling it by default, yup, like Axel mentioned, theres some
problem with driver, but do also note that theres another problem
which is Compiz Fusion won't work properly with the compiz setup in
Fedora (which is to use the gconf plugin instead of the ccp plugin).
I've asked several times to compiz-fusion developers, and the latest
answer i got is that they will never be supporting it. So, in current
setup, only core compiz can be run by default .. for compiz-fusion, it
won't work properly unless started using compiz-manager or fusion-icon
or executed manually using "compiz ccp" command (all of which IMHO, is
quite hackish)
