We had requests to also show application icons in addition to the
window previews in the past, but of course that doesn't help the
multiple-terminal case at all ...
I actually prefer not having an indication of which app is running, nor
do I want previews. That way I don't need to worry about showing someone
my screen while I'm doing a workspace switch. The key for me is consistently
having the same app/ssh connection in the same workspace, so i don't need
a preview to know which workspace to switch to.
