Feature - Mouse Click and Drag to change Workspaces

"Workspace Switcher" (applet gnome-panel/workspace-switcher)
"Keyboard Shortcuts" (/usr/bin/gnome-keybinding-properties)

Spent some time looking at Beryl for the past weeks and noticed a really
neat feature for changing workspaces (or virtual desktops) and would
enhance Gnome's usability.

CTRL + ALT + Left Mouse Click and drag to the right would switch to the
next workspace (or virtual desktop).

This would be an enhancement for the usual CTRL + ALT + "Left or Right
Cursor" for switch workspaces because the user would no longer need to
remove his/her hand from the mouse while reading material on a web

Is there a way we can modify these "workspace switcher" keys to include
"mouse clicks" and "mouse movements" instead of just keyboard signals
with "Keyboard Shortcuts"?  (Just guessing, gnome-keybinding-properties
would need to be modified to accept mouse signals instead of just
keyboard signals.)
