I have elected to stay with edgy for now. Feisty has some very nice features, however, for day to day use, edgy seems more responsive to me. I care little about compiz or beryl personally, though I'm sure they will both improve with time. Feisty "seems" to run slower than edgy on my machine(Sempron 3000, nvidia GeForce with shared memory, and I have 968 Megs of ram after the video card takes it,s share. I'm not saying Feisty is "slow", but edgy seems to work better for me at this time. I will admit that I stayed with dapper until recently for similar reasons. In the interest of full disclosure; I also use Debian etch, and find it slower than edgy, perhaps, there are some tweaks, that I am unaware of, but this is my two cents for what it's worth.
