If it can do keyboard accelerators, I'm sold. I always put music applications
(AmaroK or XMMS) in desktop 3, which sometimes I won't be switching to /for
days/. In other words, I never see the music player. It's all managed with
keyboard shortcuts. Occasionally, with XMMS, jump to track will be invoked
from the keyboard, but it's workspace-dependent. At the end, those GUIs never
get used at all. Why even have them rendered?
