And you will then be interested in editing your xmonad.hs and importing items such as

xcompizmgr is demo software and since xmonad doesn't refresh, you will experience instability (probably in the form of certain hooks will seem to function but break after a while). But if you are really bent on putting compiz in with xmonad it is the only solution I know of.
I don't think there is an easy way to do this, but you could always contact the compiz-fusion-whatevertheycallthemselvesnowafterforking team and suggest the tiling feature you're most in love with.
I think you will find some serious hurdles in your path.
xmonad is non-re-parenting window manager. This will present serious issues with the way compiz works (or xcompizmgr). I seriously doubt this will work.
