Your proposed System 2 L command seems to have extremely limited benefit
to the user. First, it would be usually be hard to predict what it would
do; it is not apparent from any easy-to-see visual display at all just
which window would appear.
Worse than, eg, Terminal 3 S?
Secondly, it is only one more keystroke to
just type System L System L, and since you can do this with one finger
poised over each key, the latter keystroke sequence is probably easier
to type despite being slightly longer.
As I tried to say in my note, it has little to do with keystrokes. I
typed System 2 L because I knew I wanted System L System L, except tha
the latter would screw me by temporarily exposing a fullscreen listener
and consequently deexposing small windows containing debugging info.
However, you are right that it is a very minor deficiency.
