Given you're talking about cgwd, you prolly mean beryl (nee
compiz-quinnstorm) rather than the original compiz which is
in Debian.

The beryl packaging is being undertaken by the X Strike Force, who're
also maintianing the compiz packages. So no problem yet, you're better
of reading the debian-x list archives to discover why it's not shipped
yet. (I believe they're doing an internal code-freeze for Etch, but I
dunno if Beryl's in that freeze or not)

As for cgwd, I presume that also became something in the beryl
packages (beryl-manager?) and so is being packaged as part of the
beryl packaging.

I dunno about Xgl, it looks like most of the interest shifted to AIGLX,
again you're better off reading the debian-x archives.
