How fast is Xfce's composite manager?

I've heard Xfce's composite manager should be quite faster than
xorg's xcompmgr. However, it's not compiled into the packages I got

I'm on a p2 300 with 64 mb ram, which hasn't got any 3d card.
Is it worth installing xfce4 with the graphical installer to test
it out, or will it just be too slow? Xcompmgr ran at less than
1 fps.
