1) spread/scale needs quite some improvements, as it hasn't seen any

here you can see the problem in more detail.
it has been forgotten for a while, so it still resembles the old
expose from like 2006.
We would take patches for:
*some improvements to the scale would be:
-window titles on the previews
-highlight current active window
-close button on hover to easily get rid of windows that are just
-automatically show scale after a few seconds hover?
I think all of those are worth trying. We would probably not be
-assign each window preview a number or letter to remember for faster
-static position of the previews for predictability
Because we'd rather do a dash-style text search than randomly assigned
hotkeys (you know what you are looking for, rather than hunting for the
window then hunting for the hotkey assigned to it dynamically).
As for static positioning, I think there should be a *bias* to re-use of
window positions, but not at the expense of crappy use of the space.
It's a spread, use the space.
