You could dump the contents of the workspace region to a pixmap, render
that pixmap to a new (unmanaged) window covering the entire workspace,
perform window movement/mapping behind it and unmap the covering window
at the end. This would work, but it's ugly and complex. I doubt a
simple and robust solution to this aesthetic issue can be conceived.
