... which is the reason it wasnt installed by default and marked
experimental. Anyway you are seeing Compiz which is a window manager
that provides the whiz bang effects and confusing that with the
underlying framework. Metacity has a compositing manager with similar
effects and Compiz can run on AIGLX too.
As I said earlier AIGLX is part of Xorg 7.1 and easily enabled now.
