Keyboard Shortcut to switch between multiple monitors


I am using FC9 with GNOME, and have two monitors attached. I am using the desktop layout "Individual Desktops", as it allows me to have independent control of 8 separate workspaces.

Is there a keyboard shortcut (or a utility that includes such functionality) to switch the focus between the two separate monitors without having to reach for the mouse?

The good news: there is (a tool).
The bad news: I can't remember its name. Was looking for
about 30 minutes on google now, but can't for the life of
me find it. I found (compiled, and installed) one about
half a year ago (while I was working at a different job),
it was a tiny wee piece of C-code that came w/o makefiles
or anything, and I assigned keyboard-shortcuts that would
allow me to switch between the independent sessions running
under control of the same X11 server process.
I was running two independent fluxbox sessions on an
NVidia set-up.

Sorry I can't actually help :/


Cheers,
Tink

The program is called switchscreen, can be found by googling 'switchscreen', its the first result. Sorry its not URL-ed, but this is my first post here, having joined half a year ago.
