I've been wanting this since the day I first started playing with xfwm4
sometime in March. I came from Blackbox, and I *like* that the wm has
context menus -- I didn't use the workspace one often, but it was nice
to have for those occasions when I couldn't remember what windows were
on which workspace; and I used the application menu *constantly*. And
they played nice with Rox (after I wrote a patch to Rox, that is :-).

I'm now using deskmenu with some scripts for handling workspaces
(primarily a wrapper for wmctrl), but it seems silly to keep this
separate from the wm...

Just my $0.02US.
