window movement between desktops

I understand, right now I drag them between desktops. It just isn't as
fast for me, especially if the destination desktop is 3 or so desktops
away (in either direction), lots of mouse movement. Or the "right
click, send to -> X desktop" works for cases like that.

 I don't expect anyone to develop this new functionality if they
weren't intending to, wondering if anyone else would be interested in
it. I will most likely be writing it either way.
