Well, if you've got edge flipping than the Fitts' law aspect of the
edges (the edge is an infinitely large button) is hosed anyway.

(Though I suppose sawfish might be able to implement things in such
a way that a click that happens within the flipping-delay gets passed
through to the underlying window.)
