For learning purposes, I have created a slimmed down version of xcompmgr 
that only does basic client-side compositing, ie no more shadow and 
fading code. It's only 1500 lines long and much easier to read than the 
original one, without all the "useless" stuff.

If you're interested, I could post it somewhere public.
