    Well, that probably adds some latency, but there is no free lunch, I guess.

    I'm still eagerly waiting for information about GLAMOR's status
    concerning multiple screens and screen rotations.
    Yes, using a compositor removes tearing (assuming a proper compositor).

    I happen to use X without a compositor, so tearing in "2d mode" would seriously affect me.

    Does it support multi-monitor configurations properly (zaphod, xinerama)?
    At least zaphod mode wasn't supported not long ago (don't know about xinerama).
    What about screen rotations? Does it work?
    !
    Rotation works fine. Not sure about zaphod.

    The only reasonable way to avoid tearing is to use a compositor.
