Well, what i meant is that the Windowlist code is already there and does most of
  the wanted feature: after middle click on background you can navigate it with
the cursor up and down as well as changing to a window with Return.

So what's missing is code to let xfdesktop display this on Alt-Tab (via xfwm4's
shortcuts and a command?) and perhaps additionally navigating it with

IMHO the most code (the navigable popup menu) is already done, which could make
the rest much more feasible.

What do you think?
