This patch allows you to use Ctrl/Cmd < and > to cycle through all of the open windows in different directions.

That's the standard on german keyboard layouts for cycling through the windows of the active application on OS X. I'd very much apprechiate if this would work in Pd. That said, i think it might actually be a bug in Tcl/Tk that it isn't working right now.
I tried this and got funny behavior - ctrl < focussed the previous window OK, but also sent it to the back of
the window stacking order.. Can this be what was intended???
yes, that's what is intended. I think each WM will have different ideas of how this should work, like for people who have focus changing based on mouse presence not clicking. But I think this is the most common paradigm. Others can be implemented in plugins
OK - but man, is it bizarre how ctrl-< actes in XFCE - I'm guessing this is XFCE being wierd
and not our fault. Anyhow, I've applied this for 0.44
Oh, sorry, I think I misunderstood, and I just tried it on GNOME and it behaved similarly. This was mostly meant for Mac OS X. I guess that [wm stackorder .] does differrent things on different platforms. For anyone who wants to improve this, the thing to do would be to test for platform using $::windowingsystem in ::pd_menucommands::menu_raisepreviouswindow
