I've seen a bit of what composite could do before, but it was always too
slow. With kde 3.5.1 (just out and merged today) and xorg 7.0, both
(along with qt) compiled with gcc 4.1.0-beta200601??, and a decent set of
CFLAGS, all I can say is **WOW**!!
I'm running active windows @ 90% opacity, inactive windows @ 35% opacity,
with dropshadows but no window fading enabled (that's still too slow),
dual 21 inch monitors in 1600x1200 stacked for 1600x2400, Radeon 9200SE
with the xorg-native xf86-video-ati driver in merged framebuffer mode.
It's quite interesting to be able to see my knewsticker applet scrolling
behind my active full-monitor window.
I'll try posting some screenshots to my webspace and posting some links
