I remember that there're lovers for "loiter-and-do" kinds. So you're
right. Anyway in the final code will be much simpler since only one
timer suffices.

"Desktop" is ok for ID, because the entire virtual desktop is
limitless. "Viewport" means the part you see inside the desktop,
so in this case, viewport-drag is more exact than desktop-drag.

Ah, dynamic-desktop is better than dynamic-viewport.

I know what you mean well, but "move" is too neutral, and in fact,
(move-viewport +3 -1) means go up one screen, right 3 screens.
"Drag" sounds of human interface. "Push" or "pull" is not exact.
