Ah, well maybe color-coding would do the job. That's something I can
experiment with.

Alt-W should be equivalent, though I'm not sure if that's
universally enabled yet. The window list items are supposed to have
icons (Gretel for the main window, little graphs for graphs,
\hat{\beta} for models, editor icon for scripts and so on). Are they
not showing? If not, what platform and version?
