sawfish pager on the center of the screen, toggled on/off by single keypress

rox pager in the rox panel on the bottom of the screen

no

Meta+arrows to navigate between viewports spatially. But if desired
viewport is too far away (e.g. I'd need to press Meta+left arrow six
times, I just click on the pager.

Mouse button 8/9 to move to previous/next viewport (viewport
undo/redo script). This is exceptionally useful to go back without
clicking on the pager again or pressing Meta+right arrow six times
again. Also very useful if I forget what I was doing, just go back a
few viewports "back in time" and I will recognize my previous stuff that I
was on.

> 7. Have any idea on them?

Stacking workspaces in "3D", with OpenGL/compiz :) Giving screen an
illusionary depth. Current workspace on front, next workspaces (as
much as you want) blurred and smaller in the background, like with a
perspective in a corridor. The you would move "forward" and
"backward" between workspaces and they would be shrinking and
extending, those out of focus becoming blurry, (maybe transparent
too) and smaller, but still visible on current screen.

Zooming out to see whole workspace on a single screen, with all the
viewports being much smaller, and windows being smaller, everything
squeezed on a single screen.
