Yup, something like that. Though it will need to be handled differently
than the right click code. I guess just adding another parameter to
popdown will work.

Yeah, something like that. Though I am not sure what is needed to get it
working right now.

To say the truth I did not even consider it, as tabbing is already
handled by Sugar in the existing code. That said, I just had a quick
look, but could not find anything in metacity or libwnck that suggests
that leaving tabbing to the window manager is possible.
