Well, some of the tiling window managers that were designed for your wall of xterms have some similar ideas about workspaces that are customised to a task.

For example in Xmonad I have workspaces with different layout rules, which are tuned for different activities like coding, chatting, web browsing, reading ebooks, etc.

The LWN comment system needs a Facebook-style "like" button whereby you can indicate that a comment was particularly insightful (or in this case entertaining) without polluting the system with comments that... er, resemble this one.
