I like this idea. Stays out of the way of people who don't want/need it.
And anyone who likes to keep hidden windows out of default cycling can
change their keybindings. Now for an elegant way to do it... Rainy
outside, nothing to do, perfect day to get this done. :)

Thanks for the link. Figuring out the code has been easy so far, it is
very clean and well written. Well, xfwm4 is anyways; I haven't looked at
the rest. But from how smooth xfce runs I'll infer that the rest of the
code is equally as nice.
