Bug Description

chromium/Chrome have onscreen notification icons for various apps (think irccloud.com). The notification bubbles typically are either for pure notification or actioning.

When you click on the notification bubbles, chromium/Chrome brings the browser into focus and switches to the tab in question. This makes sense since I, as the user, actively clicked on the bubble indicating that I want to do something with that notification.

However, in Unity when you are working in a different workspace, instead of switching to the browser it wiggles the application icon in the launcher. I would have expected it to switch me to the browser. Now, intead of simply clicking on the bubble to get to the web app in question, I need to click on the bubble, see the application wiggle in the launcher, click on the launcher icon to switch workspaces and then the tab has focus.

----------------------------------
Desired Solution:

- Clicking on a Chromium notification should bring the requested Chromium window and tab into focus.
- If the requested Chromium window and tab is not on the current workspace, the user should be shifted to the workspace where the window resides with the relevant window and tab focused.

@Alex - Why Incomplete? Was hoping we could get this to work correctly in Unity for Oneiric. Seems too late for that, but definitely for P, right?
