so from the user perspective it's a kind of lottery if it works or not! 
Sounds bad to me. You don't want to explain to the user "sorry, here you have 
a widget stack and you can not click here to move the window." The correct 
reply to this would be "what the hell is a widget stack?"

Even more reasons for me not to introduce this feature.

I don't like this kind of inconsistency at all and from my POV it is enough to 
have Alt+click
