Thanks a lot, Kay!

I know different labs handle their operator accounts very differently,
but I would still have to be convinced that scrambling the workspace is
a reasonable option in any of these setups.

Unless you are on a 4-wide-screen console with ~10 windows open, each
showing a specific set of panels.
In that case: Yes big deal.

You also lose the setup of all imported projects from shared locations,
linked directories, etc.

In my case, the workspace is practically empty except for ".metadata",
so the loss is almost complete.

Thanks again,
