Very nice plugin, I would like to make a feature request though. In the
Windows task manager you can press Escape to get out of the Alt-Tab window,
I wonder if you could do the same thing. I find myself going into TabSwitch
and then realize that I don't actually want to go to a different file (I
know, I'm weird :). I know this is pretty picky but I'm used to how Windows
work, right now the Start button is activated when I hit escape (since
Windows uses Ctrl-Esc) so unfortuantely I'm not even sure you can override
these system keystrokes.

Ah ha, I've just found out that any other keystroke will cancel the
TabSwitch plugin so actually my previous request isn't really that big of
deal to me anymore.

Yep. You already found it. I was going to suggest pressing any other key, e.g. some arrow key. BTW, pressing any other key works like pressing Esc for Alt-Tab in Windows. Also, Swing applications don't get Ctrl-Esc, Alt-Tab keystrokes.
