why is composition the job of the wm anyway? What does laying out windows have to do with making them look flashy?
Agreed 100%. Years ago, I advocated the creation of a libcomposite against which a wm could link, with the library taking care of the necessary compositing. But at the time, there was more interest in getting something out of the door quickly than in making something with code reuse potential :-(
