I thought so, but I already had that in xorg.conf (it's recommended for 
ATI cards on the Compiz wiki). I don't see any mention of it in 
Xorg.0.log (the Intel driver prints it I think), but to my great 
surprise I tried Compiz just now and it seems to be working fine--I can 
see window updates. Great that it works, just the problem is I don't 
know what I did to make it work, which is bad if it happens to break 

Now it's time to see if I can improve the performance of the bcm43xx 
driver when I'm not at home...
