I use the multiple desktops all the time, I have my programs organized
by task on each desktop. I find this arrangement comfortable enough -
even though sometimes I forget where I have put some program and have to
search for it through all desktops ;-)

Maybe it would be worthwhile to use Pango to draw the text,
to support complex scripts such as arabic and indic.

About xnodecor: Thanks for the tip - I didn't know you could specify the
overrideRedirect flag with X resources. Unfortunately, I only use xnodecor
on gkrellm, which uses gtk and doesn't seem to support this.
