Theses are great. I think this solves all of what GNOME needs from a window
manager. The WIN_WORKSPACE[_NAMES] feature would solve my horrible hack to
get a pager for icewm embedded in the panel. :)

Semantics. Call them "MARKS_TOO_COOL_HINTS" if you like. :)

Cool. If you do, I'll start hacking on libgnomeui and the panel to support
it (if you haven't already). Also, I have an incomplete desktop pager I
have been working on for icewm, that I would be happy to contribute to
GNOME and/or icewm.
