Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

This perhaps is more of an opinion bug.

I was surprised when using the workspace switcher that it expected double-clicks to switch workspaces.

I was even more surprised that I was able to bring different windows to the foreground by clicking on the windows inside the workspace thumbnails. While sort of a neat feature, it seems a bit much for a workspace switcher, and I'm not sure there's really a use case for raising windows in workspaces that you're not in.

I would expect the switcher to only require a single click to switch to a new workspace, as everything else in unity only requires a single click.

This is the compiz wall plugin

Works with one right-click but personally I'd too prefer seeing this work with one left-click.

Mike, the current code is just using Compiz' wall plugin as-is, it
doesn't attempt to implement what has been spec'd.
