Sorry, i meant: most of the work is done if xfdesktop's window list were reused.

For getting at my windows this would already nearly fit my need.

In CVS Head there is a feature where xfdesktop can pop up its Applications menu 
with a command "xfdesktop -menu", which could be mapped to a xfwm4 shortcut. So 
i thought of something similar like "xfdesktop -windows", mapped to Alt-Tab.

The windows list doesn't look at all like a task switcher box/list, but this 
could IMHO fit the bill as well as save code and bloat.
