      My directory is called ~/.sawfish  ; but I think this is not
      important, since when I play with the "Sawfish Configurator",
      the file ~/.sawfish/custom  changes.  (I regard this as a
      sign that I'm making progress<g>)

  	      I tried the "Super-Button1-Click" I tried the "Grab";
	      each time the  custom   file mentioned above changed.
	      But I didn't achieve nuttin, as far as I could tell.

	      Let me shoot for the following goal:  I'd like to
	      place my mouse somewhere _inside_ the window, then
	      press on Meta(same as ESC, for sawfish as for Emacs,
	      right?) and then, pressing on e.g. Button1, be able
	      to drag the window around.  If I can do this, then
   	      I can get to the bottom of the window by shoving it

	      Andrea, and probably many others, can give me the
	      exact instructions on how to do this.  And that will
	      be my "Hello, World" moment in sawfish configuration!

        It is difficult to get a man to understand something when 
        his income depends on his not understanding it.
