I think I found out why Mandrake went with Metacity.  I'll go slowly.

libglade-2 -> rep-gtk-0.16 -> sawfish-1.1a  (new and improved)
libglade-1 -> rep-gtk-0.15 -> sawfish-1.1   (GNOME)

but: rep-gtk-0.16 only has the GTK-2 bindings and it libglade libraries 
don't work even if you move the la library and link the so library (which 
install did not do). What worked for me was:

libglade-1 -> libglade 2. -> rep-gtk-0.15 -> rep-gtk-016 -> sawfish -1.1a

but: rep-gtk-0.15 would not compile until I hacked it, so now I need look 
for a patch.

All that to get a themer!

Final question for the GNOME experts.  Is the themer really needed in 
sawfish for GNOME2?  Does GNOME2 take over that responsibility?
