not sure what you are trying to tell me here, fact is,
other window managers (like metacity for example) get
this 'right' (as I see it) by handling Alt-Button1-Move
correctly while leaving Alt-Button1 down/up events
untouched (i.e. passing them through to the application)

Once again, I do not want sawfish to pass events through,
I've assigned to some sawfish action, without using a
special 'pass through' action variant, but those not
assinged to sawfish should IMHO be passed through, 
regardless how X does or does not work :)
