I have an ancient .sawfish/custom file that I keep copying from
installation to installation and for me this file contains the edge
flipping stuff. I absolutely don't remember how it was created (at
that time it was sawfish-ui, let's say 8 years ago), but this is what
I have in it, related to edge flipping:

(custom-set-typed-variable (quote edge-flip-type) (quote viewport)
(quote (choice viewport workspace)))
(custom-set-typed-variable (quote edge-flip-only-when-moving) (quote
()) (quote boolean))
(custom-set-typed-variable (quote edge-flip-enabled) (quote t) (quote
boolean) (quote edge-flip))


Psss, psss, put it down! -
