I'm using waffle ( which combines
the functionality of iswitch with the possibility to start new
applications. This is my favourite showcase when I demonstrate sawfish
for my colleagues. As an avid emacs user, I find it natural to use
incremental search to search in my windows the same way I use I-search
in emacs to organise my buffers. I find that this partially replaces
the need for tabs, virtual desktops, or workspaces.

Is there any specific reason you prefer iswitch over waffle?
