We don't have :-) So find a tool that does it for you or fire up your
favourite notepad and write code, assuming you are interested into or
already know about libwnck. You can use this library to listen to
workspace changes and use it to modify the current background via the
xfconf setting (cf. ``xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -lv`` or

Brian once wrote a small snippet for displaying the workspace name
during changes, it was asked on this mailing list too. It can serve as
nice a scratch program.
