Thanks for the input.  I was already thinking about doing something like
this to help differentiate information and make the crumbs look cleaner.
The best I could come up with was to display the wm_class as the
windowcrumb text.  It is a bit abusive I think but works visually.

I have also added the code so the workspace crumb only shows up if there
are multiple workspaces.  This gets us back to the simple use case for
basic users.  I am just brutishly showing the workspace crumb when
multiple workspaces are there.  This should have an animation where the
window crumb slides over and the workspace crumb fades in.  I will get
to that after I finish up window notifications.

Thanks for the input I will keep it in mind.  This was just a quick
screencast to show the functionality I was providing.  Anyone is more
than welcome to grab my branch and make a better one.
