that would be great if that could work this way. But the problem is
that, if you dedicate a workspace to each task, when you click on an

opened on a different workspace (for a different task), gnome-shell
moves you away from your current workspace instead of opening a new
window of that application. And that breaks this paradigm. Too bad,
