i used them a lot on beginning ... But now no more as kde4xx is enaugh 
pretty without them.
on gnome i set compositing which works speedy enaugh (sometimes i mixed both 
kde4.2 and metacity border so i get gnome shadows...)
but last kde1.3 is very quick and nice theme ( i like ozone as kdewin and 
don't neet any more effects ! lol
