It's called "yakuke" for kde or "tilda" for gnome. I've been using them
before I met dwm/wmii (on icewm), but I don't need them on dwm or so,
because the tiling and tagging methods are enought for me.

BTW tilda/yakuake are 'bloated' stuff compared to dwm or so. Would be
cool to have this feature. btw what you're looking for is something similar
to one of the concepts of the aborted stereowm, the push/pop feature, and
would be cool to have a per-desktop push/pop or so, but imho this is out
of the dwm approach and can be easily implemented out of the wm.
