There are two issues...

1. having a compositing manager by default will break a lot of apps on a
lot of drivers. We can probably enable by default on Intel hw when krh
and myself get things moving.

2. Once 1 is solved you get to pick which compositing manager,
personally I think compiz might be overkill, but if someone were to make
metacity and compiz work the same for things like keyboard shortcuts
etc, with compiz having extra ones, so that users wouldn't have
inconsistent experience when switching between them. And also the
default compiz would probably need to have a tailored list of plugins.
