Isn't the "matched windows" feature what you are looking for?

You can use sawfish-ui ("Matched Windows" tab) to configure the the
applications you want to be matched or you can use something like the
following code in your .sawfishrc:

(add-window-matcher 'WM_NAME "window-name"
		    '(workspace  . 4)
		    '(position  . (0 . 0)))
