though this may be a bit much, perhaps use a different key combo?  maybe 
alt+ctrl+tab goes through non-minimised apps, and alt+tab uses the 
normal method (and adding shift to the mix could reverse both of them).

the core xfce libs are somewhat documented at 
http://xfce.org/~benny/api/ - we're slowly documenting the interfaces, 
and wouldn't mind help from people that figure out on their own what 
stuff does (hell, that's how i picked most of it up...).
