I use it to move windows between workspaces because it gives me a visual 
indication of where i'm gonna move the window. It means i don't have to 
calculate the number of the workspace i need to drop the window in and 
then look for the right workspace name in the menu.

Alt-drag and then switch workspace using the keyboard works used to work 
in metacity, and it's pretty quick, but that was lost when the Alt-Fx
keybindings were removed.
