I understand that.  The reason that I think this is a good exception
is that the Alt-Tab shortcut is rather extra anyway.  it's the same
thing as mod-j.  So, to me it looks like the mod-Tab is just
backwards-compatibility for a shortcut most WMs have. So, I think
maintaining this compatibility even when the user changes the default
mod is desirable.

I don't think this particular binding would really conflict with much,
alt-tab is quite standard.
