0006-patch-to-add-a-few-more-window-operations.patch patch to add a few more window operations
This implements a few more window management actions which are somewhat
obscure, but useful to me.

Add operations to raise (without mapping) or lower a window,
and toggle or circulate stacking.

0014-xwit-use-_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW-to-implement-focus.patch xwit: use _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW to implement focus
Hi, here is a small patch to xwit.

xwit -pop -focus does not work on recent window managers because -pop
fails to bring up the window; it just marks it as requiring attention.
These window managers add an event, _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW, which can be
used to do -pop *and* -focus together.

This patch makes -focus use this event if available. I added it to
-focus rather than -pop on the grounds that -pop was meant to raise the
window without actually making it focused.

I hope you will consider this patch for inclusion in Debian's xwit.
