Do you mean that it is impossible to do this in Emacs or that swbuff
isn't the right tool for it? If there is a way to intercept keyup
events then it is probably possible.
Btw, your help here and your work with EmacsW32 is very appreciated.

Drew et al,
I haven't looked at icicles, I might do that. What I want to do is
narrow the gap between emacs and other applications that I use
frequently. I know that there are other and IMO superior ways to
switch buffers than C-tab in emacs but I prefer to use one method that
works everywhere (i.e. where it matters for me) to lessen the mental
load when switching between applications. Btw, even firefox switches
between tabs with C-tab (although as of 2.0 they crippled it to only
cycle sequencially).
