In case others (now or in the future) are interested in getting this working, I just want to note that unfortunately this very cool switcher that Justin pointed out is not usable with multiple monitors. All the apps currently visible (on both workspaces) get grouped together as being in either workspace A or B, depending on which currently has focus.
Until now the best option for use with multiple monitors seems to be Gnome's Window Selector; in spite of the small shortcomings mentioned earlier it is very useful and seems to work reliably.
