lock workspace to permanent

Couldn't find a build in way to do so. Guess that would be a feature request then.

Like to have the option to lock a work space in place that it stays open even though there is no container/ window open inside (i.e. terminal session disconnects in the background and application closes).

Preferably, I could achieve this by just sending a configurable key binding to the present work space. Bonus would be colouring or other indication in the work space bar for locked in place work spaces.

This is not going to happen.

Workspaces in i3 are created when they are used and destroyed when they are empty. This is part of the look & feel and not subject to change.
