I use the following, though it only works one way. The fore window is
moved to the back, continous use of Alt-Tab allows one to cycle through
the windows:

Key Tab         A       M       RaiseLower

I used to use WarpBack to "unwrap" the effect, but recent versions of 
AfterStep use the behavior you mentioned, it "unwraps" windows on other 
screens. Or at least last time I played with it.
