Nice as a tech-demo

Would be a nice way of showing this amazing technology to friends, as getting XGL/Compiz to work with KDE seems to be a lot of hassle(and I don't want to run both Gnome and KDE on the same box)

It should not be any harder than with Gnome, as long as you get the XGL bit working. You only have to replace Kwin with Compiz, just as you replace Metacity on Gnome. I think it's as simple as adding 'export KDEWM=compiz' in .xsession or .xinitrc.

KDE apps have a habbit of not showing up in kicker/gnome panel among other things. I believe there was a patch to fix this however.

You're going to notice zero differene without using compiz. It'll just look like a regular X/KDE session.
