I wholeheartedly agree with this. FWIW, I've been living without
workspaces and their annoying corner cases for ~1 year on current
GNOME. Workspaces are particularly confusing IME when you have more
that one physical display on a xinerama(ish) setup which seems to be
getting quite common, at least on my anecdotal list of friends and at
work (where we use Windows).
