I have MacVim running full screen in Mac OS X Lion, and I want to switch to the MacVim screen when I hit e.g. F15.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

I can't think of any way to do it with AppleScript. It doesn't really support full screen windows or Mission Control.

One workaround would be to disable Lion's full screen in MacVim's preferences and assign it to for example the second space in the Dock. Then ⌃2 would usually select the space it's on.
