I see that #8 got dropped from the final document and I think that was a 
good decision.

I found this link to a how-to:
but I could not make it work.  Maybe it's because Compiz and Xfce 4.10 
don't play well together. I don't know, I've never used Compiz myself.  
At any rate, even if it could be made to work, it seems way too much 
trouble for what it's worth, IMO.
