It seems silly to have a separate tab with just the checkbox and
launcher button.
In the fedora case, the button could just launch the desktop-effects
capplet, which
contains another 2 checkboxes...

Reasonable things to consider would be:

- move the 'enable desktop effects' checkbox to the interface tab

- for the simple desktop-effects capplet in fedora, it seems really
overkill to lauch that
  via a customize button, and it would be much better to just pull the
handful of checkboxes
  in the same tab where the 'enable desktop effects' checkbox lives.
The same is probably
  true for the metacity compositor, that only has a few booleans for
configuration, if any (?)

  This doesn't preclude adding a "Customize" button for launching a
more extensive compiz
  pimp-up app if one is installed.
