Agree with this. I think the lib approach is okay when you can use Alt+Tab to 
switch between the views and the WM approach is to difficult to implement.
It's a pity but acceptable. ;-)

And I think we should really implement the PWM-like grouping of windows
(s. http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42023). Since most of us agreed that 
this is a good idea anyway.

Did I just volunteer? No. :-)
