If you have to first start metacity and later run "sawfish --replace"
that makes sawfish "a second-class citizen" and that is the whole
point.  No idea how to configure things for sawish to start on a
login in Fedora 15 (with Fedora 14 this was just a question of some
gconf settings although something was not exactly as expected)  but
it has to be some way.  At least some window managers are apparently
able to pull that trick.
