Hmm, make the name "move" obsolete, and create "carry" and "push" may be
what you want. Got no good idea for "copy". Copy-stay and copy-go?
(Darn.) In this case, it might be better to seperate WS menu from
the win-op-menu, so that user can choose.

Logically it's perfectly correct. Dunno the practice. 
(I don't use WS. Some windows are matched to be VP-sticky. When I want
to carry a window to another VP slot, I make it temporarily toggle VP
stickiness with a key binding, go there, and release it.)

In fact, sawfish's "stickiness" is too ambiguous. It sometimes means
WS-sticky, otherwise WS-VP-sticky. Should I clean this up?
