I agree. On my default configuration for channel #1 I have 3-4 windows,
and Alt-Tab or equivalent in one direction only is a pain in the ass.

Quickly glancing tells me doing this would require hacking
WindowManager::circulate in Buttons.C, since it's responsible for this

(By the way, the mouse warping I referred to is when the mouse cursor is
moved by wmx. I think warping is a bad term for it, but that's what X uses
and it kinda stuck while I was writing)
