compiz-fusion working, but a few questions

So I just installed compiz-fusion 0.5.2. and it works great, but I do have a few questions.

1.)With Beryl I could press the mouse wheel button down to initiate cube rotation, I changed the setting so that it also does this in compiz-fusion, but with beryl if I did it on the bottom parts of the screen it would bring up taskbar programs, I really liked this because I could rotate the cube or maxmize a program when I wanted just by using parts of the screen, I hope I'm being clear . This really is not a big deal, but hey never hurts to ask

2.) I realize that compiz-fusion is still a work in progress but with beryl-manager I could swith between beryl and kwin which was very useful for playing games seeing how beryl uses a lot of resources. How do I disable compiz when I want to play a game and then re-enable it when Im done, like you could do with beryl-manager

3.) Is there going to be a compiz-manager like beryl had with beryl-manager in the future? I know about ccsm which works for configuring but I want to be able to switch between windows managers like I stated in ques. 2.

Thank you.

I switch window managers like I always did, with the --replace option:
compiz --replace
metacity --replace
kwin --replace
I think it will all be implemented, it will just take a little while. In the meantime you can post in the opencompositing forum... If enough people ask for a certain feature, they will add it.

In the new fusion-icon the wm-switching is done by a mouse click, perhaps you can get packages for fusion-icon somewhere? I use it on Gentoo and it works great (just like beryl-manager).
