workspace-persistant-focus [sic] by Kevin Sivits is an extension that remembers
which window you have focussed on each workspace, and then refocusses that
window when you return.  It should be pretty simple to extend that work to
remember the viewport position (viewport-{x,y}-offset) as well.  You will need
the window-refocussing behaviour in any case, I would have thought.
