Uploaded to repository.

Give it a try let me know what you think. 

Gave it a quick spin myself.
Only window manager that xplanet works in so far, for me.
Center mouse button brings up the menu.

Tried a couple different appearance themes and window animations but that's about it.

Works very well. Great concept. Lots of config. possibilities.

If I recall right Sawfish was one of my first WM in RedHat centuries ago. ;)
