yes, it is included, as lots more of features. You can change lots of
shortcuts for mouse and keyboard in sawmill. In the Gnome Control Center or
Sawmill Configurator (sawmill-ui), choose Bindings...

Than in Keymaps section choose Window, add a new binding, push Grab Key...,
then press Alt and Left mouse button. There appears Button1-M-Click1 in a
text box, you should change Click1 with Move so that it became
Button1-M-Move (not a intuitive way of configuring :). In the Command list
choose "Move window interactively". Try, this works.

With resizing the same way, just select middle button (Button2) and resize.
To resize/move by dragging a border, just select "border" keymaps list, and
doing the same steps as above.

You can do LOTS of comfortable bindings, just try, read what's available in
that Bindings section, and you will never want another windowmanager.
