real mystery. What is it for if it does not effect KDE?

The only way to configure the compiz stuff for KDE is via systemsettings
(i.e., "Personal Settings Configure Desktop" in the KDE menu) in
Desktop->All Effects). ccsm and simple-ccsm-kde are useless for this.

That is because compiz and kde-win are 2 different window managers. If you use
compiz as your window manager (which runs on top of the kde desktop) you use
ccsm. If, OTOH, you use kde-win (which now has its own desktop effects
completely independent of compiz), you use the KDE configurator.
