Acctually, compiz, the window manager, does the workspaces, not teh
rendering engine (xgl or aiglx). But, in either case, compiz allows for
(i think) upto (or beyond) 10 workspaces. As you add them, the Cube has
"sides" added to it (making it more like some sort of cylinder. 

I never need more than 4 really, but would love to have 6 (the top and
bottom being used as well)
