Wow, I'm happy that you are trying this, now there is a chnce it will
get fixed :) 

Yeah, the raise-lower-window stopped working and currently I'm using
two different keybindings for raise-window and lower-window.

I'm not sure if it's intended or just a side effect of composite
extension, but the fact is that with it all windows are rendered
completely unobscured, so that later they can be stacked with

I'm afraid that a loop over higher stacked windows is the only
solution... If we limit the loop only to windows that intersect with
current viewport (and current workspace), and only to windows higher
in stacking order, an intersection check shouldn't take too long?
I can have as much a 200 windows open in all 24 viewports, but
usually not more that 20 in a single viewport. How long could be a
loop over 20 windows to check their coordinates intersections?

I'm speaking in theory only as I cannot program in lisp :)
