Oh.  In that case I think if you have focus in workspace 1, and
workspace 2 is displayed in the other screen, then mod-2 ought to
change focus to the other screen.

(Things can go wrong if you have a pointer which jiggles a bit, since
the pointer stays in the same place and may cause a window in
workspace-1 to regain focus.  But that shouldn't be a problem for
normal mouses.)
