Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

This is the only Unity launcher item with no right-click quicklist.

To me it seems important to have consistency. Though of course we know that we shouldn't just add things for the sake of it.

I don't know if added "Switch to Workspace X" options is considered a good idea?

Good catch, but let's ship it with no quicklist in Natty. Less changes,
more bug fixing. In Oneiric, MPT suggested a couple of different options
we can consider.

It's too bad this wasn't done in time for Quantal. Perhaps it could be considered for 13.04?

I'd suggest having a quicklist that just says "Workspace 1, Workspace 2," etc but replacing the "Workspace #" with a name if the Compiz Workspace Naming plugin is being used.
