11-05-17, amano: Maybe you can make sure that compiz gets out of the way as much as possible for full screen gaming to not negatively affect the gaming performance (e. g. with the intel driver: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=kwin_speed_test&num=5 )

Work items for ubuntu-11.10-beta-1:
[canonical-dx-team] dx to provide a tested tarball: TODO
[didrocks] integrate gsettings backend by default: BLOCKED
