Bug Description

Currently, windows from all workspaces are shown in Plank. In Docky, there was an option to show windows of the current workspace only. When enabled, the dock would ignore all windows not in the current workspace, allowing you to forget about them and concentrate exclusively on the windows/tasks at hand. It would be awesome to have this feature in Plank :)

I also think that this would be a very nice enhancement to have. It's a small change that can greatly improve the workflow for people searching for this use case.

That was by design. If an item is 'pinned' then it should always be visible on the dock.

Can this feature be improved by modifying the behaviour when a pinned item is clicked, so if the application (say a browser) is opened on a different workspace, then try to launch a new instance of the app instead of taking you back to the other workspace?
