I object. This "new" feature is already nearly there.

If you have two active windows, in which you are working,
just zoom them to the top of the client stack. Then you
can easily switch between them with MODKEY+j and MODKEY+k.

If you have three windows, in one third of the possibilities
of switching from any of client 1, 2 or 3 to one of the
remaining two clients you have to press one more key without
your patch: MODKEY+j+j instead of MODKEY+k and the other
way around. So during a prolonged work session you can save
1/3 * 1/3 = 1/9 of the keypresses with three actively used

The setup takes some key presses with your patch too and
managing (remembering and getting the right key combinations
into muscle memory) the additional state of every client
in your brain also takes some more time.

So at least for my workflow (which is not that static) this
patch is not useful.
