I'd love if ctrl-shift-w acted like a "toggle" - that is, press it once
to make the floaters disappear; press it again to make them
reappar (hopefully in the same place).

I think this behaviour would be easy to understand for a number
of users, because it mimics the "Show Desktop" feature offered
by both Windows and Linux environments.

Should this be filed as a separate request?
