Mail has its own Space, VNC has its one Space, iTunes has its own space. The three applications I use that require the most desktop real estate. Then I have Firefox, Adium, and pretty much all other applications set to the first Space.
So I tried spaces the way that you use it, and i really like that i can put certain apps in certain spaces. I like the fact that you can click that app on the dock and it takes you to that spaces. It turns out this functionality is also in lion. You just right click the app and you can assign it to a space and by clicking that app on the dock it goes to the space. anyways just thought i would let you know.
