With this script you can move windows between heads.

To activate the script copy the script to

Add to your "~/.sawfish/rc" or "~/.sawfish/sawfishrc":
(require 'Send-to-head)

Restart sawfish.

Now you have 2 new keybindings "Send to next head" and "Send to
previous head". You can bind the keybindings to keyboard or frame

The script require sawfish >= 1.8.0
