Assume you have windows 1,2,3,4,5,6 with 1 being focused. Now you need
window 4, so you press mod+j/k 3 times, so in between you focus 2,3. If
you need 1 again, you have to mod+j/k 3 times again. It gets annoying if
you have to alternate between those windows often.
With the modified version, you would call zoom() after you focused window
4, which results in the stack 4,1,2,3,5,6. Now you can exchange window 4
and 1 with one call to zoom, which will result in the window stack
1,4,2,3,5,6. zoom() allows you to toggle between window 1 and 4 with one
key press.
