[kcmkwin/compositing] Show warning message when opening the KCM The idea is to warn the user that changing the settings might break the setup (example would be selecting EGL on NVIDIA).
I find the specific warnings much more useful than the general one, because they don't tell users "don't touch anything!" but "this specific setting my break stuff", even if they don't understand what exactly it breaks. So definitely +1 for that solution from me!

Here is an alternative suggestion for the OpenGL warning (with comments on the rationale): OpenGL compositing has crashed in the past. //The KCM doesn't say "KWin" anywhere else, so it shuldn't say it here, either. I don't think the "the default" is valuable information This was most likely due to a bug in the graphics driver. //To make clear it's about the graphics driver If you have upgraded the driver since then and think it may have solved the bug, you can try re-enabling the OpenGL detection. //More precise than "stable driver" This, however, may result in an immediate crash if the problem persists. Alternatively, you can use the XRender backend. //thr "instead" is redundant to "alternatively"
