The window manager Sawfish provides a command that's quite similar to
Emacs' iswitchb.  Except that it selects X11 windows, of course.  I
like it.

But I think Stefan uses ctwm.  Hm.  That one has an icon manager which
lists the windows one below each other, and you can use the keyboard
to navigate that list.  Also, of course, there are up to 32
workspaces.  So maybe he keeps 3 frames in each workspace, that adds
up to about 100 frames.

Stefan?

I guess that I would use sww.el in that circumstance.  My
understanding is that it is something similar to C-x b, but for
Windows task bar entries.  I've never used it.
