Sorry for my late answer. I agree with dropping compiz from the official
repositories now. I'll still maintain compiz 0.9.x in AUR, but I don't feel
that it's supportable in the current form. I will contact with upstream
about the problems, but it takes some time. Anyway, compiz will likely
become unmaintained within a year as soon as Ubuntu switched to Mir display
