By "virtual desktop" you probably mean "workspaces".

That's actually one of the next points on my 2do list.

Just have a look at the last patch in the queue: it checks a value from
policy and sets a flag. For your case we'd just read the desired
workspace ID and call clientSetWorkspace() w/ it. In handleKeyPress()
(events.c:410) you can see how it's done based on a hotkey.

Feel free to try it on your own and send a patch to me, or open a
feature request ticket.
