On this computer, using the binary nvidia drivers, i could enable compositing. 
But due to some nvidia driver bugs, my computer becomes slugish very fast, 
which means compositing is not an option.

i don't think that the x.org environment is stable enough to be able to remove 
a option that lets you work around bugs.
