I must be missing something here.... You're using dwm, but you're using
the tags as virtual screens instead of tags? The whole point of tiling
window managers like dwm is that you don't have to do window management
(ie expose-like features)... If you have too many windows on your tags,
add more tags! If you can't find a window then you're doing it wrong.

I suggest kicking your virtual-screen habits and using it as it was
intended, you'll save yourself a lot of time and effort.
