Bug Description

There is much discussion going on about the ability to quickly switch windows on different workspaces, such as in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/689733

There are pros for Unity's behavior in 12.04 (to *not* show windows on different workspaces for Alt+Tab and Super+W), but I think it's clear that this is not true for all work modes of users.

Since the option to include such windows via Ctrl+Alt+Tab is available, I think it would help if the information was included in the shortcut list revealed by holding Super.
