You should try it. In short: suppose you have windows stacked in this order:

        a_1 a_2 a_3 ....

where a_1 is the top window.

Calling focusswitch:
call1 a_2 a_1 a_3 ....

call2 a_1 a_2 a_3 ....

call3 a_2 a_1 a_3 ....

I should have started a new thread. It's just that your patch reminded me this
function ;^

oops. I never noticed it because in awm there's at least one window opened in
each space (the terminal).

~> Which keybinding do you use for such functionality?

Alt+Tab, because I was accustomed to Window Maker's Alt+Tab.

Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right to go to the prev/next workspace (in the Y axis).
