"Combines" and "functionality" is way too optimistic description.
Only this is not the point.  Fedora does not ban, or at least not
yet, other window managers and XFCE, for example, still works.  So
the question is how to make sawfish a replacement of Gnome Shell
without requiring to start it "by hand".  Other examples show that
this is possible.

Not that much with functionality stripped out but I am not sure how
this is relevant.
