BTW, I do not think adding OpenGL support in xfwm4 is a good idea...
Compiz kicks ass and it makes no sense to duplicate/reinvent the
wheel. If you want OpenGL compositing, use Compiz (please let 's not
do like KDE4... There are already way too many duplication of efforts
*If* you want a cool idea, it would be great to have a "compiz
decorator mode" in xfwm instead, this way xfwm4 could behave either
like a full window manager or just a decorator for compiz.
