You can read about large desktop in the EWMH. The essence of it is that with
workspaces, the content of other workspaces is unavailable (Thus making, for
instance, cube a bit difficult). So Compiz essentially operates on one big
workspace/desktop, but splits it into several smaller viewports.
So the math for total number of viewports is: vertical resolution * horizontal
resolution * number of desktops.
