	It is indeed the GNOME project mentality, and this is why I
moved away from GNOME as my DE.

	So if I understand it correctly, there is no general solution
to this problem on the sawfish side? If so, it is probably time to move
away also from the rest of GNOME applications which I still use.

	Well, I moved to XFCE instead, when GNOME 3 was released.
But I still use some GNOME apps, such as evince, and generally I prefer
GTK apps because of the consistency with the rest of my XFCE environment.
But yes, switching to Okular is indeed a possibility.
