Should be doable. I'm not sure how I can do this, but there is a
terminal application (tilda) which does something similar - you can
toggle its visibility using a custom shortcut. I've looked into the
code for this and it seems that it creates a new thread waiting for
events from the X-Server. I've posted a feature request for this on
BerliOS so I hopefully don't forget it in the next release.
