Ah. That would be a cool feature that I would never use.

However, a slight variation on that feature would be great - what I'd like
would be launched applications stay on the desktop they were launched from.

To clarify, here's an example:

I start firefox, while I wait for it to load, I switch to another desktop to
continue work in another app.
Firefox pops up on the desktop I'm working on, not where I started it from.

I start firefox. While I wait for it to load, I switch to another desktop to
continue work on another app. When I switch back to the desktop I launched
firefox from, firefox is loaded and waiting for me to use it.

I don't know how easy this is, but it would be a very nice feature.
