I have to be honest: I knew about the wiki, but I don't really like
the site because of the commercials. I did take the time to check it a

Yes, I understand that. But aside from that, it seems like sawfish,
rep and rep-gtk give enough power for creating addons like an
application launcher, and things like Merlin.Ugliness (seems to
include an iconbox) and Cabinet.

I got it to work! And sawfish-client is just wonderful... I did the
following to test the pager initially.
(require 'sawfish.wm.ext.pager)

thanks for the help,
