How can the workspace switcher icon be added to launcher again?

@Marco:

for now from the Appearance panel in gnome control center (you need the unity version).
In case you removed it from favorites as well (i.e. cfr gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites), you need to make sure that that list contains also the 'unity://expo-icon' URI.

@Marco:

Ah, of course also setting the vertical/horizontal sizes in CCSM general options to what you prefer, will do the same of gnome control center ;)

Sure, thank you.

Another question: is workspace switcher icon shown in dash? I think this feature (automatically enabling/disabling workspaces) would work better if it was symmetrical (remove the icon from launcher and workspaces are disabled; add it to launcher and workspaces are enabled again).

Yes, that's the plan, we are just missing the unity application lens bits, patches welcome :-)
