Hey folks,

I've been working on adding a feature to twin which will allow us to do 
Mac like switching. This has already been a boost in my productivity 
since completing the patch

For those unfamiliar with the concept, on an Apple computer, they have 
ALT+Tab and ALt+`. Alt tab functions similarly to ours, but the really 
good feature is the ALT+`. It allows you to switch between windows of 
the same application. Instead of having to scroll through a many 
different applications, you just see the ones on the same type. Example: 
you want to switch to the Firefox "download" window, and you are 
currently focused on your main firefox window. A quick Alt+` will switch 
you back and forth between two, like Alt+Tab operates, to see the tab 
box hold down Alt+` to view of the same type, and switch between 
multiple ones you then do the regular old Alt+Tab.

I hope I didn't ramble to much, but it's an very useful feature! Just 
try it out and see!

I have attached the patches to the bug tracker.
