But in all seriousness... I completely agree with you, I use separate
workspaces for a reason: to keep tasks separate from each other, and to
keep windows related to the task at hand in the same workspace. The
standard way to switch seems broken to me too, but it seems to have been
adopted from OSx. However, there's a simple solution:

You can even set it to only display windows in the current workspace.
There's no need for agreement in ideology when there's technology to enable
all of us to solve our problems ;)
