FWIW, this "feature" confuses a lot of people ("I was scrolling in
firefox and suddenly my windows switched around" [because they moved the
pointer off the bottom of the window without noticing]) and there's some
push to get rid of it in the normal taskbar.

Look at how Alt+Tab is currently implemented (mostly in
src/shell-alttab.c and js/ui/altTab.js). You just need to rewrite
altTab.js to use your UI rather than the standard one; the shell tells
it the right order to put the windows in.
