This may be apparent by now, but I thought I'd clarify: 4.0.6 does not 
contain the feature to show the workspace names in the WM menu, but 
4.2.x does.  The 4.2.x upgrade should be fairly painless (assuming we've 
all done our jobs correctly), so there shouldn't be much (if any) risk 
in upgrading, if you're worried about that.  You may lose a couple 
settings here and there, but, by and large, most of them should be migrated.
