Integration (Fedora 11, Gnome 2.26.2)


	I went back and figured out what I'd done to get sawfish-ui to appear in
the Gnome Preferences -> Windows.  There needs to be a copy of sawfish.desktop
in /usr/share/gnome/wm-properties/sawfish-wm.desktop, with an entry for
ConfigExec=sawfish-ui.  I tried putting sawfish-wm.desktop in
.local/share/gnome/wm-properties but this didn't work for me. Combined with a 
copy of sawfish.desktop in .local/share/applications, this works pretty well. A 
10 second startup delay is a small price to pay to ditch metacity.

	It's sad the the Gnome folks are moving in a direction that will lock 
them into some derivative of the metacity code base. More generally, it's sad 
that they're moving away from the flexibility that's characterised X-based 
window systems for so long.
