Don't think Metacity does this... that was a nifty feature, though.
Metacity is intentionally minimalist, as you've seen with their docs, so
you do lose some things.

Yes, though not so easily accessible. There's a graphical setup tool
(as a separate package) that handles focus and workspaces. For other
things, including keybindings, you can set parameters in the gconf
files. Gconf-editor makes this almost painless, but you can hand edit
the XML if you're feeling masochistic.

Hehe... sounds about right.
