Does composition render double-buffering useless?

Hi there,

I am working on making a toolkit's double buffering algorythmn more
efficient and one thing I wonder about is wether it still makes sence
to create a special double-buffer pixmap when a composition manager is
used or wether this only created additional overhead/footprint?

Thank you in advance, lg Clemens
