Oh, I should also mention: this patch means that sawfish-pager wont work
with sawfish versions previous to 1.6.

Is there any reason not to go ahead and include sawfish-pager in sawfish
proper?  For better or worse sawfish-pager is pretty tied to sawfish,
since it accesses sawfish internals in order to get the window layout
and such.

To be completely honest, I'm not all that fond of sawfish-pager -- I
find the code to be less readable than most sawfish code, and it's
complicated.  But apart from the gnome pager it's the only pager I know
of that shows viewports.  And the gnome pager is huge -- installing it
(with dependencies) is about 400mb on my system.
