Hi Jochen,

One alternative is to keep the ordering in the StackSet as the
stacking order, and then have the layout and keybindings have an
additional ordering that decides window locations for the layout. In
other words, "windows W.shiftMaster" will be your raiseWindow and you
have to define an additional 'Stack Window' in the layout (or
elsewhere) that decides where windows are put.
