To put a window into a tab group, I normally do this:

  - Place the mouse in the window.  Press Hyper-g.
  - Move the mouse to the tab group.  Press Hyper-g.

To remove a window from a tab group:

  - Place the mouse in the window.  Press Hyper-g twice.

This is, of course, using my keybindings.  Yours may differ.

The bindings and behavior don't work as well as fluxbox, but they
work well enough for my use.  I don't know enough about rep and
sawfish to make changes quickly, and I was never able to make
certain things work right.  For example, setting the sticky state
does not apply to the entire tab group.  And I have no way to
raise/lower the entire group as one unit, so you can actually
stack other windows between tab group layers, as shown here:
  (if access is denied, copy/paste the address instead of
  clicking it, to bypass the referer check)

Could I get a copy of that theme?  I only have one tab-compatible
theme so far.

I've never tried to cycle between tab groups, but I have keys for
cycling within a tab group.  I bound C-Tab and M-Tab to raise the
next/previous window in a tab group.
