I tried looking for this, but i couldn't figure out the chain that would
work.  Fortunately, sawmill has a named pipe:

  /tmp/.sawmill-$LOGNAME/$display named pipe.

This looks to be the ultimate way to find it, for sawfish.  Looks like
it may be a hangover from the sawmill named days - something was missed?
:)  (and yes, this is current, from today's login in my case)

Is the lsof, netstat, etc. way a viable way of finding the display for a
program in the general case?
