xcompmgr is a compositing manager, and xfwm4 already includes one (but
it's not compiled in by default), so xcompmgr is not needed. A
compositing manager is a complex tool in charge of "composing" the
screen from the different windows that are supposed to be seen, applying
transparency between them and their overlapping areas.
"transset" is just a simple tool that instructs the compositing manager
to force an opacity on an existing window. "transset" uses virtually not
resource by itself.
The Xfce panel doesn't need transset and is able to change its opacity
on the fly when the mouse pointer enter/leave the panel. This works only
when a compositing manager is running, either the embedded one or an
external compositing manager such as xcompmgr.
