I'm a lowly user, but I do use xcompmgr and kompmgr all the time (I find them
considerably faster and less silly than Beryl/Compiz).  If people are interested
in improving it, I would suggest having a few more configuration options.  For
example, it'd be nice to be able to make menus fade, but not windows, or have
different settings for menus and windows and also have a way to set a default
transparency for menus that isn't applied to windows.  I imagine that wouldn't
be too hard to add (if I were a little more skilled a programmer, I would do it
myself, but my experience with X programming is quite limited, alas).

I know many other people are using it, based on talk on the Gentoo forums, btw.
