Uh? What is so important about tabs to get a top level but
workspaces/viewports or layers or focus or themes or <fill the blank>
are nowhere to be seen?

Depends, what is the real purpose of the user doc? Documentation for
users that do not want to get into the guts of Sawfish? Then you
should cover the concepts, probably starting with what is a wm or even
x11, from general into concrete, and explain the defaults for all
that. At end, explain how to get more from other places or handle
small scripts (for the case of "paste this in your rc").
