I love this idea.   I use four 4x4 desktops, one basically for stuff that I'm
doing only on my local machine, like ftp'ing, news, shells/terms, tkdesk, etc,
the next one strictly for office related functions, office e-mail, netscape
(for web based helpdesk software), applix, that sort of thing, then the next
for my system administration stuff, I run lots of shells/terms to other systems
as well remote x-apps and the like, and the last desktop for stuff I'm running
from my home linux box (where is :)

So, I think this is very cool idea.  I'd love to be able to have my main wharf
stay the same (i have wmifs wmmon pagers and couple other things I'd like to
have stuck), but maybe a 2nd wharf that changed.

It gets my vote for a new feature.
