...You are aware that essentially all of that functionality is already
available in OB3, right?  I've actually been using similar controls to
that for quite some time (and I can change mine to be non-colliding
with other programs), minus some of the rather more exodic mouse
bindings and the alt-tab (sort of) previewer.

It seems like rather severe overkill to pass all the switching
behaviour to an external program, considering that OB3 already does so
little (In the good way!).  Of course, to each his own.
