The problem with that is that I suspect the themes won't get fixed. Looking
at themes from freshmeat shows the most recent update is from 2005, for
a theme added in 2005. Everything else was last touched 2004 or earlier.
Will enough of the theme authors still be using sawfish to update the

Thanks for the comments. I seldom use lisp outside of sawfish, not
because I don't like it but simply because I have little use for it. I
will probably make more such beginner's mistakes, but I'll try to keep
these points in mind.

If anything breaks non-horribly, it should be fixed too. :-)

I've looked at the version you've committed, and it's better than the
patch I've put on the wiki in all the ways that it's different. Would
you mind updating the wiki to list your version of the patch, and just
get rid of mine? It doesn't conflict with the other patches, and applies
cleanly to sawfish-1.3.2 without modifications.
