What about Compiz-Fusion Jeremy? Agreed its a part of Compiz but it has come into its own with the merger of Beryl and Compiz. And on most desktops, Compiz is different than Fusion. Or better, maybe just rename the Compiz option to Compiz-Fusion.

Compiz Fusion extends Compiz, the actual Window Manager is what you're voting for.

I find KWin the most powerful of those, although I miss the bling of Compiz Fusion. Ah well KDE 4 is not far away and it has the compositing effects integrated into KWin.

icewm is ok, and ratpoison for something different, but effective.
