And for examples.

I also feel like the Shell should allow people to have a fixed number of
workspaces on start, while keeping the default behavior easy for most users.
The problem is, it should not conflict with workspaces auto-management. See

Yes. But that's really an advantage, not a constraint. Writing an animation
to hide the panel will be much nicer in JS than it would have been with C. Not
even speaking of coding, you only need to drop one .js file to install
you extension, and you can try it live; with C, you'd have needed
Autotools, make install, and building it each time you want to test it.
