Description of problem:
This is not a bug but a feature request.

I wish Metacity had some quick way to go to the previous workspace,
sort of IceWM's "KeySysWorkspaceLast" keybinding.  I wished it so much
that I actually made a patch which allows some sort of "workspace
history" (a list of configurable size that remembers the most recently
used workspaces) along with keybindings to quickly jump through them.

The keybindings are "disabled" by default so they can't harm anyone
not interested in such functionality.

Could this (or a similar patch) be included in the distribution? ;-)

I think this adds too much complexity/confusion, though I appreciate
the work to create the patch.
