Re: omit current window on scroll in split-screen -> scroll through windows in history order

I also regularly max out the number of windows, and even worse, I
changed the maximum number of windows to 40 in the source before
compiling (MAXWIN if I remember correctly). I found that renumbering
the windows helps, grouping similar windows together so scrolling
between isn't as long.
I've toyed with the idea of hacking the code to make 2 or 3 columns of
windows in the window list, so you could scroll around easier. What
would be really nice would be an auto-complete type of system. So say
you have windows "abc" "apple" and "annotations".. you hit <cmd> "
which brings up the window list, then you type A P <enter> and it
selects the window "apple."

Now the `other' command is very useful but it would be much greater
if one could scroll backwards and forwards through the last n
selected screens. Or possibly even select a scroll group that
I could <command> p and n through without becoming annoyed by the
other 25 windows :)

} Good idea, I'll implement this. (Or does somebody else object to
