No there are not... In fact I have been working on a "thumb wheel" desktop 
switcher.  It seems a little more reliable than the electric boarders imho :]

The largest problem with circles on the desktop is they tend to take up 
space^2.  Whereas if we can make this a rectangle, we can wedge it into 
places eaiser.

Also I did a small experiment with the current wim, by makeing it into a 
kicker applet.  Basicly even large kicker it is barely usable, it really 
needs 128x128 from what i have seen.

Any ideas here?
