[PLUG] Hotkey to bring a window into the forground?

Way back when, in Windows you could assign a hot-key to bring a window 
into the foreground.  I defined my first three command line windows as 
ALT+1, 2 & 3 and have been using that for maybe 15 years.  At some point 
the acceptable keys changed, and ALT+ was disallowed, but I used a hex 
editor on the .LNK file to force it anyway, and it still works up to XP, 
at least.

I know that System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcut has "Run a 
terminal" but I don't want to run a new one, I want to bring my existing 
one into the foreground.  How do I do that in Ubuntu/Gnome?

In case it matters, I'm using roxterm, not gnome-terminal, as previously

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
