This works even if Terminal isn't the active application, which makes it really convenient to paste text into the Terminal from other apps.

This hint is especially valuable on laptops where your hand is already over the trackpad - in contrast to the desktop where you have to reach for the mouse. If you're already keyboarding away, it's far more convenient to simply use Command-` or Command-1 thru 9 to switch windows.

But this has serious downsides... Example: If I switch to a windowless application with Cmd-Tab, and then do a new window, I have to first move my mouse away from the terminal windows littering my screen, or I'll just get a new one!
I wish I could adjust that last behavior.
