Re: Breadcrumbs in the panel

Some days ago I posted a few design ideas to the wiki:

They contain some concepts recently mentioned on this list, like
having the workspace name in the panel, window switching using the
panel and shading windows instead of minimizing them.

On IRC, Marina suggested using the breadcrumbs on top for switching
windows, and for requesting attention at another workspace or when
another window is maximized. Owen mentioned that the designs might be
too text-heavy, and for example 'Workspace 1' isn't recognizable if
you don't see the name elsewhere.

Further comments are appreciated! (Below the wiki page, in private
mail or on this list.) If I still think it's a good idea by next week,
I'll try to implement it in a separate branch.

The idea is awesome and it deserves implementing. Only thing that bothers me is the repetitive appearance of the window titles. One solution would be to have only the name of the application -gedit in the titlebar and the name of the file in the top panelbar thus making the file associated to the activity that is active.

Futhermore this idea could be stretchd to integrate with my idea of CLI like interface in the menubars:

and have the current activity become an entry on mouse over/active state and to be searchable for documents, other activitys or some tags and stuff like that.What do you think?
