Mmm, good idea; I meant to include a patch, but I forgot.  Ok,
committed.  This isn't a final implementation.  I just get the workspace
number using the Netk stuff, which I want to replace with grabing the
appropriate netwm root window property, since netk_screen_force_update()
is pretty expensive, IIRC.

On a side note, does anyone know if this is supported with
libstartup-notification 0.5?  If it was added more recently, we'll have
to bump the version requirement...
