I just tried it (P3-1000MHz, i815). Just add to xorg.conf:
Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "enable"

I will not change anything immediately. The go to kcontrol->workarea->window 
preferences (sorry, reverse translated) and you see a tab for transparency.
You have to manually enable it (and get a warning popup).

With current Etch, it works (at least the last 5 minutes that I tried it).
As usual, eys candy en masse (shadows, transparent windows). However, only 
kwin actually makes use of it, the other transparency setting (konsole, 
amarok) are still only fake transparencies. They do not make use of the 
composite extension :-(
However, those would actually be the main purpose of actually using it (e.g. 
seeing the letters change behind the amarok OSD).
