Hi Kristian,

I know you said in your alt-tab removal commit that we would
reintroduce it again in 1.5. I'm just sending this here now
to have it on list, but waiting for 1.4 to be released is fine
with me.

In this series I'm not removing the old switcher. I don't think
there's any harm in keeping both together, as long as they can
coexist. With the change to mod-esc, that's the case now (that
fixes the `alt-tab leaves views around' bug you were seeing with
modifier=alt as there were then two alt-tab modifiers and that
didn't work out very well).

Also note that e.g. gnome-shell has both alt-tab and alt-esc (and
alt-` which we don't have). But if you still the old switcher should
be removed when we merge this, I won't complain!

There are some cosmetic improvements I would like to make (e.g. making
the selected window more obvious via prelight or something) but I'll
send those later on when I actually have them.


Emilio Pozuelo Monfort (3):
  Bring alt-tab back to life
  switcher: change keybinding to mod+esc
  alt-tab: switch binding to mod+tab
