I've pondered a little on this one.
Your patch adds an option, "Switch temporarily to the workspace where
the window is (except for windows that really want focus)", that when
selected alone doesn't have any effects, unless it's associated with
"Include windows on all workspaces when cycling."
I propose to not add another option, instead modify the original
behaviour (i.e. before your patch) in this way:
when an user select to "Include windows on all workspaces when
cycling." and "Display windows names and icons while cycling through
windows." to display the workspace name (your patch).
When "Display windows names and icons while cycling through windows."
is not selected and "Include windows on all workspaces when cycling."
is selected, switching temporarily to a different workspace when
needed (the old behaviour).
What do you think?
P.S. I've left out completely the viewports case... ^__^;
