Ah, yeah, this too: though if you do this to every window that gets focus, you
won't be able to mod+j/k your way through anything but the first two windows.
(In fact, for floats, i shiftMaster on modkey release (emulating the usual
Windows alt-tab stacking behaviour), but this means you can't see what you're
selecting until you've selected it...).
