Putting the configuration tools in separate packages would be the best -
at least for the size of the livecds. But compiz itself seems only to
work when started with gconf as plugin (which is in compiz-gnome). A
compiz --replace &
kde-window-decorator --replace &
seems not to work. I may be wrong in that, because it was only a quick
test today. If I find some time I will investigate this and open a bug.
you have to pass a configuration backend to compiz
compiz --replace ini & should work.
the kconfig backend is not in the stable (0.6) branch yet.
so it will be in compiz 0.8 when it gets released which is too late for F8.
