Yeah -- it was a demonstration for how fragile gnome stuff can be,
making it a bad idea if I want to rely on that stuff.

Obviously this is a question of taste.  I use workspaces for different
kinds of work, and viewports inside workspaces are for organization.
Another point against gnome is that for a really long time it was
completely broken when there are more than one session with different
screen geometries -- at least that thing got resolved (but when I
complained about it, the first reaction was along the line of "why
would you use more than one session??".  *sigh*).
