The idea is very fine.  But that should happen in GNOME 2.1.  Everyone

desktop application switch.

I think we had beaten over this subject plenty before.

Gnome terminal has been under stress use for a lot longer than
profterm.  `general bugs' in profterm and gnome-terminal belong in
wildly different categories.
