We should probably set a lot of them to nothing by default.

Looking at the EWMH spec, I see that what I called a virtual desktop,
they call a "Large Desktop". So compiz currently implements one "Large
Desktop" and by rotating the cube you change the viewport in this "Large
Desktop". This "Large Desktop" is ONE virtual desktop or workspace.
