I answered your question on this earlier today. I guess you aren't
subscribed to the list? If not, it would help if you requested to be
copied on replies.
My answer was "Don't worry about removing those [x-window-system and
x-window-system-core]. They're just convenience packages."

No. You just need to use 'update-alternatives --config x-window-manager'
to make sawfish the default, and/or change your .xsession script if you
(Actually, sawfish will probably become the default anyway once
installed, if I remember the priorities correctly, but
update-alternatives is a useful thing to be aware of anyway.)
