How to remove Switch Workspace icon on Launcher panel in ubuntu 12.04

I have never understand why it is impossible to remove from Launcher panel(vertical panel) Trash icon and Switch Workspace icon, most people do not use them and for some people it is even dangerous.

Here is a way to remove Switch Workspace icon:
1) Apply updated for 12.04 at least for December 1, on clean 12.04 this approach did not work for me.
2) Aplly following commands, copy-paste from here.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped 
sudo apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
3) Restart the system and open
, go to
Ubuntu Unity Plugin
switch to the
tab and turn off
Show "Expo Icon" in the launcher

Trash icon still at panel :(, If you know how to remove it, please let me know.

Update: for 13.04 - there will be standard way to do this, link.
