'Must do' why? I don't see anything that would follow from. In
particular, if compiz indeed does something wrong, why doesn't it affect
those of us using free drivers?
Generally, performance is mostly up to drivers. Until you have specific
evidence that this is due to something compiz does wrong, it should be
assumed to be a driver issue.
