We do use alt-tab. We should continue to support this, both for
"legacy" support, but more importantly for compatibility with other
platforms. One potential possibility is to differentiate between
cycling in "visible order" in the frame (with the activity button)
while cycling in "order of last use" with alt-tab.

Good point. I assumed that your work on the control panel was built
on top of an API for modal alerts. We should formalize this, and make
sure we transition to it in all the relevant places (wireless, file
picker, etc). That would really make things feel more solid.
