It's peculiar, because the patch looks quite straightforward. How 
abouth the following case?
* Yes: Display window names and icons while cycling through windows
* No: Switch temporarily to the workspace...
This utilizes the un-patched part of the code; I suspect that the bug
had already existed, not introduced by the patch.

Oh, oh, just now I understood. It'd be good. So re-definition of the
set of independent custom variables seems desirable. It'd be something
like this (VP = viewport, WS = workspace):

1. Cycling includes (a) only current VP (b) all VP, but only current WS
   (c) all WS
2. At each step of cycling, it is allowed to switch (a) none (b) VP
   (c) WS (When the entire cycle is terminated, i.e., when the
   modifier is released, WS can change anyway. The case 2-c is
   provided by the patch on stake.)
3. At each step of cycling, window name & icon is displayed or not.
4. If the window lies in different (a) VP (b) WS to the previous VP /
   WS, then they are displayed. (c) Always. (d) No, thank you.
5. Format string for WS / VP info. I think this is good. Imagine, if
   both #3 and #4 are on, then <xterm in (WS-name, 2, 1)> may be
   enough, but if #3 is off and #4 is on, then <WS: name, VP: (1, 1)>
   is good, isn't it? So let's make it customizable.

Any comments?
