Re: Is there anything comparable out-there?

There are bug fixes in the CVS tree that are not in the last
release.  As I recall, there is an essential 64-bit fix that is
not in the release.

FreeBSD ports system builds from releases, not arbitrary source
checkouts, so fixes are not available without building by hand.

Fedore core/centos don't seem to have sawfish RPMs available.
When I request sawfish, my admins just say, "no RPMs, it's
dead, go away".  I have yet to get the CVS version to build
on CentOS 4.4.

The appearance of being dead keeps people from trying it, leading 
to more disinterest and lack of availability.
