	Just to clarify your above message:  is it possible to assign the 
windows corresponding to (say) two different TeX document triplets 
(source, console & output) to two different virtual desktops -- and not 
have Virtual Desktop (Pro) (or TeXShop, say)  eventually mix them up?  
Can this be accomplished with a single instance of TeXShop.app running, 
or have you somehow enabled duplicate copies to execute simultaneously 
and independently on your system?

	An alternative approach for some folks (but at roughly the same price) 
might be to use DragThing -- it has the option for a palette that shows 
all currently open document windows.  (A bit like a dock for open 
documents, for those who haven't tried it.)  A colleague swears by it, 
although I never quite grew accustomed to it myself and thus let the 
demo expire.  YMMV.
