You have right here, Compiz offer a lot of really useful extensions 
(aside 3D cube - like Zoom, Opacify, Group and Tab Windows ...etc)

unfortunately there are several drawbacks on implementation of AIGLX 
with proprietary drivers - even they offer support on the hardware side 
- this collaboration is just too young. But things are in change, 
peoples work on that - see Ubuntu blueprints. This feature will come 
maybe on Ubuntu 9 or 10.

Until then I still hope in a GTK2 good engine. Maybe a new Murrine / 
Clearlooks like engine.
