window cycling style

The 4.0 version was that, which came with SuSE 9.3
I simply selected at the kdm login window an XFCE session type, and had it 
running, with the same look as the current (4.2) version. So I am pretty 
sure it was xfwm4, however I did not check it at that time. 
I don't know wether the SuSE guys modified something on the xfwm4 source 

Then I removed 4.0 and installed 4.2 from sourceforge, since it supported 
keyboard shortcuts.

My question is then reformulated as follows: is it foreseen that xfwm4 
will allow this other type of window cycling (showing the whole window 
instead of only the frame)?
