Alt-Tab is my key combo for *cycling* through windows. I'm still in the
habit of clicking with the mouse to give the window the focus, but there's a
key combo for it that you can use instead.

I think I explained it badly. The way I do it, you don't need to switch
*back* to the master window because you're already there.

1. Click (or whatever you do to set focus) on master window.
2. Alt-tab (or whatever you do to cycle) as many times as needed to get the
window you want in the non-master area.

Now you can click (swap focus) between the master and non-master windows,
and they will stay the same.

Tonight when I'm on my normal computer, I'll try to do it entirely
mouse-free so I can write better instructions.
