There's probably a bug already on it, but I couldn't find it, so I'll
wait for someone else to link it.

You mean like the old workspace selector, seen on the Tour[0] page
that desperately needs an update?


It was removed. I didn't like it because you couldn't see anything
with a single workspace with many windows, or many workspaces with a
few windows. My first contribution to the project was a feature in
2009 that would resize the window thumbnails with the mouse wheel as a
a bit of an easter egg. I don't use it though, because it's not
helpful in passively identifying windows.
