Saving and restoring workspaces is an interesting idea that was
discussed many times on this list, but it wouldn't currently work well
because of the state of session saving, and would require quite some

Labeling workspaces would be nice for people using static workspaces
(this existed with Metacity). But only dynamic ones are supported in the
design, so I think you should make workspace labels an extension, or add
it to the static workspaces extension if the author agrees. That's the
best way to make this feature available, and to try it.

Good luck!
