One argument in favor of current layout is that Left / Right relieve you
from keeping one bit of context, namely current workspace number. Also,
Move to Workspace is submenu, so if you really only want to move to
neighbouring workspace, it's slower and less convenient. Not sure
however how often it's used in reality, I remember myself using it only
few times...
