You are definitely not the only one.  I use a call script.  Running "call  
firefox", for example, compares output of "pgrep -x firefox" with "wmctrl  
-pl".  If a firefox window is already open, it is switched to with wmctrl.   
Otherwise, "firefox" is executed.

You're going to miss a lot.  That's like 17 configure-breaking design  
upheavals for GNOME :P
