Bug Description

Please consider implementing feature to switch between more windows by the same application, with mousewheel. Docky has this feature and it is great. If you have for example Firefox + download manager, or more nautilus windows opened, you can move mouse over application launcher and with mouse wheel switch between those windows...

I agree. Avant Window Navigator also has this feature, and it's VERY confortable, since I don't even need to click.

Proposed behaviour:

 - If mousewheel over an unfocused application, just bring the last window application to front.
 - I mousewheel over a focused application, rotate betweet windows of the same application, following the up or down mouse order.
