I've just checked Alt+Tab with my patch - everything works fine, so no problem

A millions of people (include me) every day use Windows shortcuts -
Super_L(standalone) to launch/hide Start Menu, Super_L+Key to launch actions.
And they finds this scheme very usefull.
Of course, it's possible to make a checkbox in the settings for enable/disable
this behavior.
If support for such features opens up some other bugs - it is all fixable
I know, this shortcuts looks like a minor problem, but a hundreds of such
"small issues" are prevent millions of people switch from Windows to Linux
