AFAIK Kim B. Heino was for a while adding spec changes to git so I
would think that such files are already there although I did not
look at the latest version.

Also sawfish, librep and rep-gtk rpms were for some time available
at even if this URL does not seem to be
valid anymore.

On number of occasions you can find and a configuration
writes from that a suitable specific spec.  Other approaches are
possible too.

Much more serious challenge would be to investigate how to make
sawfish at least "reasonable" in an upcoming Fedora 15.  With
radical changes there this may turn out to be difficult.
