Yes. Why couldn't this problem be simply solved by changing the virtual 
desktop pager to show "name" instead of "number" by default ? If something is 
clearly labeled "Desktop #", I do not think it would be that difficult for 
the "average joe" user to figure out that there is more than one desktop, 
specially if the user is as curious as the one used in the argument above.
