..?  I've currently got 26 workspaces, some of which only have one 
window, but many of which have 4 or more.  I'm probably going to have 
upwards of 40 before my count really stabilizes.  Do you really think 
that's simply "unreasonable" ?

The thought that someone at the window-manager level ought to be saying 
"oh, it's simply unreasonable to do more than <X>" with other than stark 
technical reasons... well, it raises my hackles something fierce.
