Yes, and I like it too, but see the discussion for instance here:

xcompmgr is a proof of concept. It is known to leak things into X memory, and
upstream to my knowledge doesn't really care about it as that's what it is - a
proof of concept, not meant for daily usage. However I use it myself, and if
someone would step up and help upstream patch or maintain it, I'd be glad
myself :)

googling xcompmgr memory leak turned up a few other things, including 
people who are 99% sure that the leaks only happen when the fading 
options are turned on.

Random quote of the last-time-I-ran-bash:
"Ah, you know the type.	 They like to blame it all on the Jews or the Blacks, 
'cause if they couldn't, they'd have to wake up to the fact that life's one big,
scary, glorious, complex and ultimately unfathomable crapshoot -- and the only 
reason THEY can't seem to keep up is they're a bunch of misfits and losers."
