About: Alt+Tab = Windows Cycling among workspace (not only current one)

I really want that feature, because i'd like to avoid to use the ctrl+alt+right shortcut (which require 2 hands)

nope, it's intended that alt-tab only cycles through windows on the
current workspace.  this isn't a preference, and, IMHO, it shouldn't be.

Other features I like to use : a shortcut to unhide the pannel taskbar

SAWFISH

<RzR> i want to cycle ALL opened windows whereever they are
#rzr@nrv:AmiloA/$ tail -1  ~/.sawfish/custom
(custom-set-typed-variable (quote cycle-all-workspaces) (quote t) (quote boolean))
<mmc> i have a command w/ this core:
<mmc> (unwind-protect
<mmc>         (progn
<mmc>           (toggle-cycle-global)
<mmc>           (call-command 'cycle-windows))
<mmc>       (toggle-cycle-global))
<mmc> and, for cycling i have 2 features:  skip to a _different_ workspace, to a next windows.   And cycling in an implicit last-search, set by iswitch-wi>ow  (and  wid.jl).
