Unable to say anything about Compiz, but Metacity binds nothing to
M-Tab (moreover, it binds nothing to Meta-combinations at all).  For
switching between windows it uses Alt-Tab.

Another problem is that in many Linux distros Meta and Alt bound the
same physical key by default.  But they may be easy splited using
keyboard preferences.  I use Windows key for Meta and Alt key for Alt,
for example.
