Feature request: Change workspace at screen edge with mouse wheel

I like to have a feature from compiz (without animations) in xfwm4: Change a workspace with the mouse wheel at the edge of workspace.

I don't like to switch the workspace just with a mouse movement because it will 	accidentally change my workspace often.
xfdesktop can change the workspace with the mouse wheel... but if you have many windows, you won't see a desktop to do that (... and I don't use xfdesktop). So I need another possibility to change my workspace with mouse wheel. You can just move the mouse to left or right edge of your screen change workspace with your wheel.

Maybe a distance of one or two pixels of the edge can do that... whatever window is under your mouse it will change workspace with the wheel.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move your mouse to the left or right edgy of your screen
2. Use your mouse wheel... (up will change to next workspace, down to previous)

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Change your workspace
