Very useful Daniel. One query. I need to run with the 5-buttons option. Would 
this go somewhere in the desktop file, or does it need to be set in my 
.custom somehow? At the moment I get sawfish running from my default Gnome 
session but then always have to do "sawfish --replace --5-buttons" after 
everything starts up (see earlier discussion on the list on problems with 
alternate keyboard layouts and mouse buttons).
