compiz fusion for slack 12.1

I've put together a compiz-fusion package with everything needed to get it running under slack 12.1 (fresh install).
feel free to find a more permanent host for this file.
install instructions:
cd to your download directory.
tar xf compiz-fusion-0.7.4.tar.gz
cd compiz-fusion-0.7.4
installpkg *.tgz
cd fusion-icon
python install

Now you have the "fusion icon" command and menu item.

Have you thought about submitting your SlackBuild script to

That would be "a more permanent host" if they approve your script.
