See gnomewm on CVS. It is not ready for general consumption though.
Other solutions are also considered. said:

None. libart's rendering takes place in dedicated buffers
and uses its own primitives. said:

If kde is really quicker than Gnome and if the difference is more than
10%, then this is an real issue.

Do you think you could provide this mailing list with quantitative (I mean 
numerical) tests (everybody could reproduce) ?
