Hi arnuld, you can look at the (somehow discontinued) sawfish wiki at:

and in attachment there is my personal sawfishrc.
In order to write your own sawfishrc you're supposed to know at least a
bit lisp programming, or you can use the sawfish-ui interface.

I'm using sawfish with gnome, and I'm used to bind every window
manager function to some super-<key> combination (using the "windows key"
as the super modifier) thus avoiding clashes with applications
I keep many workspaces, each one for a different task, switching
between them with super-<number>.
