Suggestion for XFce 4: workspace manager

Hi all,

I'm just going to use the list to dump an idea. Maybe there are pepole
interested in implementing it or maybe it gets shot down, that's ok too.

I think it would be nice to integrate all workspace management in one
app (xfws, xfdesktop, ...):
- background settings (a separate background for each workspace would
  be cool!, perhaps even useful :-)
- root menu(s)
- add/remove/rename workspaces (the idea is that the panel desktop
  switcher can then just monitor changes, perhaps running xfws -i on
  right click)

additional possibilities:
- minimized icons

So, any opinions? volunteers ;-)?


Well, just for the sake of tradition: a screenshot. Nothing new, but I'm
pretty happy with it. I might even keep it for more than a day :-)
