This is per-driver integration work, and also requires poking pretty

That's a nice dream world. compiz is a GL-based compositing manager and
you are simply not going to get acceptable performance with it in
software for the same reason you can't play quake3 in software.
The only concession we might want to make for the composited desktop on
non-3d hardware is making 'xcompmgr -a' usable. You won't get pretty
transition effects, but at least it'll hide all the redrawing.
