That sounds like acceleration is actually a loss for workspace switching
with EXA. :}

That'll be interesting, but I think at least xfwm4 (which I'm using)
still (un)maps windows on workspace switches (so all the re-mapped
windows get expose events and need to be redrawn by the clients), in
contrast to e.g. compiz.
