So you are saying that it is in the operating system designers hands to control the speed at which the user clicks alt tab?

Further shape and color recognition (used to recognize windows with the wall plugin) is hardly an element reserved for the technical elite.

You may disagree with their choices but to call the Beryl devs incompetent is a bit precocious. Inexperienced and perhaps overenthusiastic yes, but hardly incompetent.
