Comment (by jscipione):

 The problem is that in Haiku's case that can't consistently be done in a
 meaningful way. For instance, if an app's windows are spread across
 multiple workspaces, what do you do? Bringing them all to the current
 workspace is annoying since you most likely had them spread out
 intentionally (i.e. I tend to spread Pe windows across multiple workspaces
 grouped by project), and anything else is pretty much guessing as to the
 user's intention.

 Just do what Mac OS X does, alternate between the windows in the various
 workspaces each time you click the app icon.
