thanks for pointing this out and also for posting gandalfn repositories.
Now that I've tried gandalfn compiz (edgy-dev), I tend to agree with the 
metacity developers and I think it is out ouf question that ubuntu 
should use the vanilla compiz.

* gtk-window-decorator follows metacity settings
* very sane defaults
* easy to use gnome-compiz-preferences
* fedora devs are working on it

I would even say that compiz from gandalfns repositorys is almost 
deployment ready as is. great job gandalfn!
