We should design our window manager to ensure that this is not the case.
Two obvious features we will require are:
1. Activities should be able to indicate instantaneous textual state (e.g.
the title of the current web page ) in a way that is visible when
selecting an instance. This may or may not be separate from the "Title"
of the instance.
2. When selecting an instance, there should be an easy way to see all
titles at once, rather than scrubbing through them with the cursor. Eben?
