Re: Why nested alt-tab?

Currently I've made it into my own extension rather than replacing the
inline switcher.  The extension requires this small patch that allows
the appswitcher to be replaced:

I'm hoping this patch, or something similar will be accepted into the mainline.

My extension can be viewed here: TN/

I'm no expert at this, but this setup works for me.  My AltTab
replacement also moves all windows of the selected application to the
front as I mentioned in my last email, and it also has very different
theming than the default alt+tab switcher, but this can be changed in
the stylesheet.  Currently it is just set to whatever I like :P
Again, you will have to patch your gnome-shell using the first patch
above, and then install my alttab extension in the proper location,
and then restart gnome-shell.

If people use this and have comments/bugs/feedback i'd be glad to have
any of that :)
