kwin performance gets worse and worse with every release

I just installed KDE RC1.  The trend of kwin becoming slower and slower 
continues with this release.  I remember KDE 4.3 (or maybe 4.2) where 
kwin was fast and nice.  After every release, it would become slower. 
It reached a negative peak with 4.6.  Now with 4.7 RC1, kwin has become 
even more slow.  It's extremely annoying to use.

What is happening to kwin?  It's becoming the definition of "sluggish 
GUI".  Out of every window manager I have tried, kwin is now the slowest 
of them all.
