This would suck even more in case of translations, so if you can
avoid this kind of string composition, please do so.

(This problem is already evident in Metacity, where we've got "Move
to Workspace Blah", and when declinations are involved, with the same 
name being used both in nominative ["this is Workspace Blah"] and 
accusative ["move to Workspace Blah"], we get crap.)

Thanks for your attention,
