Hi Casian,

the wiki page looks quite good, but I can only repeat myself by saying that it 
cannot (and should not be) an effect. Yes in Compiz it's a plugin but that 
doesn't matter for KWin.

You probably noticed while writing the page how shaky the whole process 
becomes when using an effect. First of all you have to adjust all shaders in 
the core which kind of breaks the concept of plugins in the first place. The 
next thing is that you want to kind of intercept all rendering calls in the 
effect but that's just not possible. Not all rendering goes through the 

That's why it has to be in the base compositor before the rendering is done.

Please move it to http://community.kde.org/KWin if the proposal gets accepted. 
We have all our internal documentation there and the project seems to be more 
about KWin than about OpenIcc :-)
