I'm not entirely sure, but it seems to use this library to match it:


It seems to deal with a growing list of of corner cases (some here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/657771 )

So maybe this feature in xfce4-panel would mean to add a dependency on bamf.

.. however xfce4-panel is extensible, so one could fork the window
list into a separate plugin and add this feature there.
