Suppose you have four kate instances and five dolphin windows opened, among other stuff. Alt-TAB will switch between all those windows on a certain order. Now, the proposal here is as follows: if the active window is one of the kate instances, with a certain keyboard shortcut (say, Ctrl-TAB) you jump between kate windows only, without viewing dolphin, but if a dolphin window is the active one, the keyboard shortcut will jump between dolphin instances, with kate being out of the sequence.

This will be really useful for those apps that opens one window for each document.

That only works with desktop effects enabled: I prefer a more "general" solution... ;)

This is already implemented. The default shortcuts are "Alt+'" and "Alt+~".
