Interesting proposal, except for the portion above. Say I have the
third and fourth clients visible, with the third focused. If I change
the focus to the fourth client, I don't want to hide the third - I'm
probably still working with it.

I think the visible clients should only change when a formerly hidden
(stacked) client is made visible. So, when the fifth client is focused
and made visible, the third would disappear, leaving the fourth and

It would work the same way in reverse. With the third and fourth
clients visible, I can focus either without changing visiblities. When
I focus the second client, it becomes visible and hides the fourth.

This is similar to your idea, except for delaying changes to which
clients are visible.
