Yup, that's the feature I was looking for. However, I just thought of a
potential problem with a Haiku implementation.. In Windows, for example, a
hidden window is restored if you click it's icon thus it's consistent if a
new window is opened when you click a non-running app. However, currently in
Haiku clicking an app in deskbar shows a list of associated windows, and one
isn't restored until you also click the one you want. To make this mechanic
consistent in Haiku I think you'd have to implement starting an app in a
similar way to how you restore windows. It's definitely worth trying how it
feels, but I'm worried that it won't be as elegant and efficient as
