Dark-Tabbed (with 5 btns on each side)

Because MetaCity was (well still is) totally feature-free. Mutter (MCity 3) though will
add extensibility by plugins, but well how many years after Sawfish got that feature?
So practically there isn't any feature in Sawfish that may lack compared to MCity.

Another reason was that I found it strange what happened to my WM. I was 14 when I first
installed a linux distro (the so-ultra-hard-to-install Debian/Woody) which came with
GNOME 1.x and therefore Sawfish, upgrading much later to Sarge gave me GNOME 2.x with
MCity. I didn't know what happened but after some investigation I got to know that I was
forced to use a feature-free WM. Since I also found out that Sawfish was in koma I
decided to stay at MCity atleast now. But then finally Janeck came to rescue me,
recovered Sawfish and I'm happy again. Also just using Sawfish increases your L337-Level
by 10. :D

I used to use trayer when it was standalone, but I'm now using gnome-panel (in GNOME).

Alt-TAB forward, Ctrl-TAB backward and some more combinations, practially seldom used.

Just for testing the hook or edge-flip. (Or a fullscreen-game that changes it on it's
own, but that doesn't effect Sawfish & Co.)
