Bug Description

I really love indicator workspace and have grown to rely on it as a key addition to Unity. I've also taken the step of renaming my workspaces. The names are like "Personal", "Develop", "Work", etc. See here for more details:

I like that the indicator shows the names of the workspaces in the pull down menu. However, I would also like to see a new feature whereby the indicator can show the name of the workspace on the indicator instead of just the workspace number. The number itself doesn't have a lot of meaning once you've taken the step to rename your workspaces. And because this indicator already has the names, perhaps this is an easy-ish fix. Thanks.

In 12.10 there is a "Name Workspaces" plug in compiz. The names set within that plugin should be used to populate the menu items for moving windows around.
