I sometimes find it useful to change focus without raising the new window. Usually, I use the mouse for that (focus-follows-pointer), but being able to do so via the keyboard seems useful.

Implement no-raise-on-cycle functionality.
1. Ctrl while holding down Alt to select the window & avoid raising it
2. New shortcut which cycles windows but doesn't raise them.
(Bug: you can't let go of any modifer key.)
Not sure about this one, it really looks like bloat to me ;)
Not to me. I'm using it to keep gxine's window on top while switching between a few other windows. (Try it with the inactive opacity and you might begin to see its usefulness.)

As a workaround, you can use Xfce's "Always on Top" feature. Right-click the gxine's titlebar and check "Always on Top". Now, no matter what you do, it stays visible!
