How is that particular action defined in the openbox configuation
file, rc.xml?

For changing desktops the only action that seems to be available is
the "GoToDesktop" action:


Can this action be somehow bound to the mouse?

What I would like to do is just move the mouse pointer to the screen
edge and, after a short delay, thereby jump to the adjacent desktop
in that direction.  AFAIK, it seems that there are no openbox actions
that would correspond to this.
