Lots of things can be useful to different people.  I find the current
behavior of the Pager to be EXACTLY what I need to clean up/reorganize
cluttered desks.  The "draggability" of the pager is MUCH more convenient
IMHO for  moving windows than trying clicking on a window, then a pop up,
then "move to desk n".  Infact, this is one thing I haven't seen on any
other pager---the ability to drag windows across DESKS as well as pages.
A feature I "never" use, though, is the 3rd button movement of the
viewport.  Perhpas that could be chosen for the focus?  (Or some other
conbobulation of buttons like SHIFT-Button2 etc?)

Just $0.015 from an avid AS user drooling over the release of 2.0 :-)
