Complain to the developers of your X driver to make their XRender faster.
I don't see any lag on my systems. While I don't doubt that Metacity
might be able to be faster in this area, I think the main problem is
just bad XRender implementations but people keep complaining to the
wrong place.

As Havoc said there's no right or wrong answer. Pick one and stick with it.

I'd imagine so, as it would probably require a fairly hefty rewrite of
a lot of the code for gain that we're not even sure we'll get.
