I've now read some of the pages about the hooks the were sent to the list.
But I doubt catching alt-tab is a good solution. You will no longer allow
your users to switch applications. If Xwin is the only application which 
will be running on the system, you could consider installing linux since
the xserver is much faster.

You can of course alter the source code and add this hook to xwin. But 
I doubt you can convice any developer to add this.
