I think the thing that's confused everyone here is the whole "I do not 
want to use a compositing manager" stance.... but what this has now 
boiled down to is "I want to write my own cut down compositing manager". 
Which ever way you look at it, you'll be "using a compositing manager" 
even if you have it internally.

Please keep in mind that you should ensure your app plays nice if 
another compositing manager is already running.
