Adopted scripts

Jump-or-exec (adopted)

Focus a specific application, start it if it is not running, or perform custom actions if it's already focused.

Note that this script is now included in Sawfish as a command, but unfortunately the person who included it moved the third argument to the fourth, so if you want to use the example below you will need to add 'nil' as the third argument.

Makes the size of a workspace infinite.

Maximize-windows-fullscreen (adopted)

Three maximization functions: vertical, horizontal, both.

Tabbed-windowing (adopted)

Tabbed windowing implementation similar to PWM or FluxBox... turns the titlebar into tabs, so that windows can be grouped into a single frame.
