Beryl is unmaintained and obsolete, and Compiz Fusion - its successor - is not "enabled by default". That would require practically forcing every user to use proprietary graphics drivers, some of which don't work too well on Linux (I'm looking at you ATI!). Whether Compiz Fusion is "included by default" is not another matter entirely.

If it's on by default and no acceleration was found then metacity should just work. ATI opensource driver(certain models) have acceleration so would work with compiz.

I just installed Tribe 4 last night from a disc on a fresh system and I had "normal effects" set for me right out of the box. So, I think it does get enabled if your hardware can support it, but I really am not sure.
