New Revision: 39751
Changeset: http://dev.haiku-os.org/changeset/39751

- Give the option for the desktop listener to "absorb" key events.
- Make the S&T groups navigateable by pressing the S&T key + arrow down/up. Arrow down means to send the active S&T group to the bottom. Arrow up means to rise the bottom S&T group to the front. If no S&T group is selected, in
both cases the front-most S&T group is activated.

Mmh, there are actually programs that use Option key shortcuts --
particularly in an editor Option+cursor keys is likely defined to something useful. While Option is OK in combination with dragging windows (just like almost any other modifier would be) reserving it as the general S&T shortcut
modifier is problematic IMO.

I was not aware of any option shortcuts. Any suggestion of free shortcuts? When S&T is more integrated into Haiku one also could think about to integrate it into the twitcher...

I also wanted to try to utilize the middle mouse button for S&T operations. Is there an special reason why you disable middle mouse button dragging?
