Because I (and I'm sure others) will not always realize which app has focus and end up telling Gworkspace to quit. Often times apps start to accumulate and you want to quit a few of them after awhile. While Cmd-q(ing) everything one after another, it's very likely that you will accidently tell gworkspace to quit. changing the accelerator to Shift-q will solve that problem.

Apple thought the same, that is why Finder has Cmd-shift-q. I'm not for copying apple all the time, but it seems to have been a good decision.

Or, since GWorkspace is indeed a special case, simply change the quit command from Cmd-q to Cmd-Q (Cmd-Shift-q)

Why? If it is the quit menu entry then it should have the same shortcut as all other quit commands.

But of course it could be renamed to "Log Out..." as on Mac OS X. Maybe this would even reflect better what it does than just "Quit"?

In general I agree with you, but GWorkspace is IHMO a special case if (and
only if) quitting means logging out of the session.

Actually, Enrico put this in on request by me (or at least after I requested it). I have GWorkspace controlling my session and kept being thrown out by hitting Cmd-q while the wrong app was active :-)

Maybe it'd be possible to check if GWorkspace was a child of some window manager or directly of the display manager, and display the panel in dependency on that.
