Current Behavior

Currently, the payload for window event does not contain information about the workspace. That information must be queried via a TREE message, which is quite overkill.

Desired Behavior

Indicate the parent workspace of a window for WINDOW::new, WINDOW::close, maybe the origin and the destination for a WINDOW::move, and possibly other cases.
A typical use-case is the tracking of windows for automatic renaming of workspaces depending on their content.
