Hotkey for Window Menu and stuff for tabs

Dear friends,

I have an idea that could be a gift for those who deal with many
windows. It consists on improving the Window Menu applet by adding these
simple features:

1. Assign a hot key to it (like Alt-F1, which opens the Applications
2. Sort the windows in the Window Menu by type, then by title (like the
Window List does when Grouping is enabled)

Later, we could start thinking about adding such a feature to every MDI
application like x-chat, epiphany, gedit, etc. Imagine a button in the
notebook widget that, when clicked, pops up a menu listing all the tabs.
This button would have a standard shortcut key associated to it in every
GNOME application. Hmm. I'm becoming very excited about this.

This is so simple. Even a person with little spare time like me can
implement this. I'm thinking about doing that, but only after some

What do you think? Is this sane? Which hotkeys should we use?
