Every app on my phone, in three touches or fewer

Does a widget exist for Android to jump instantly to any home screen with one touch?

My Droid Incredible uses HTC Sense, so I've got seven home screens. I'm trying to organize all my apps and widgets in the most efficient way I can think of (with the goal of minimizing taps/clicks/swipes to get to things). I decided a good way to do this would be to group similar apps and widgets into themed home screens. So, I'll have one screen for media players, one screen for utilities, one for games, etc.
Whenever I press the home button, the phone displays screen #4 (the center, primary one). I'd like to place a series of icons on there to jump straight to the other screens. So I can just touch the button labeled "Games" to instantly switch to screen #7. I hope my Google-fu is just failing me, because I can't find anything like this. Does it exist? If not, why? Is there some technical reason it can't be made?
I'd love to hear alternative ways to streamline app/widget management. I hate swiping through multiple home screens but I'm out of real estate on the innermost ones and a bit frustrated that I can't put widgets in folders. Your miracles of Android organization, greatly appreciated!
