I was curious how a compositor would to do with Window Maker. To my surprise, it worked very well, and I was satisfied with the results. Shadows displayed as expected, as did transparency (mostly). The only odd effect I got was that by enabling transparent menus, other areas (which apparently are treated as menus) became transparent as well. Other than that, it preformed smoothly and it was great.
