As a Kubuntu user, I'll just mention that KDE has had this ability for quite some time now.

Well usually you install the kubuntu-desktop (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingKDE) package to add KDE, but I've never found it easy to manage multiple desktops. I just install Kubuntu directly when building systems. I haven't run a machine with the stock Ubuntu desktop in a decade now, so I can't help much with adding KDE to Ubuntu.
