Quite possible, of course, but if so I'm missing how I miss it. ;)

Currently, I'm not using tags at all, and I'm not clear how that would
solve my problem. It would complicate it, of course, because if I start
using tags I'll have to worry about whether the command should select
some view currently displaying the app, or add it to the current view.
For now, I'm not worrying about that.

I tend to rearrange my windows based on task, and I like to hit (for
example) mod-w and be presented with my web browser. I don't like to
have to stop and think "now, where did I put my web browser and how do I
get there from here? Is it already running, or do I need to start it?"
Mod-w should do all that for me: check to see if it's running, start it
if necessary, and give it focus.
