But the option applies to the entire desktop, turning compositing off for
all windows when the window with the block transparency option activated
is displayed, or even if it's not displayed as it's on a different
desktop or below some other window.
Thus it's not an option I'd consider viable, as I'm multi-monitor here,
so even full-screen windows (which were the original compositing blocker,
for games and the like) are "full screen" only to a single monitor, not
the entire desktop, and I actually use things like transparency to allow
me to type into one window while using the content of another window, one
viewed _thru_ the other, as a reference, and I never want compositing off
for the entire desktop, here.
But it might work better for you, if you have less need of compositing
effects like transparency and don't have a multi-monitor desktop so full-
screen really is the entire desktop, and thus aren't bothered as much by
blocking compositing for the entire desktop.
