That's still a bug, though.

For the whole sawfish thing? Well, if the transistion could be
automated. But according to FAQ (haven't check wether it's still
valid) GUILE (and perhaps others, too) is missing: 

"byte-code compilation, autoloading, built-in event-loop, ..."

I won't switch to something different, just to get rid of rep,
especially, since we got no control of the other thing, so it would be
rather difficult to push our changes, or if it lacks features librep
got. Also I'm not that happy with FDO projects, as they tend to be
semi-closed in development. Also you're (you is plural here) complaining
about not knowing enough about rep-internas and that it's therefore
difficult to work on it, but do you know the internas of your favourite
replacement? If not, then there's no chance for a change, as we end up
beeing in the same situation. Perhaps some don't like those statements
from mine, but I can't always be the "all-loving-Chris", you know.
