One option would use the current hildon-desktop a11y support. But
probably it isn't really useful, as to do that you would require to
install on the device libbonobo, at-spi, cally, etc.

Then you could access to the tast-switcher button and click on it, or
simulate the X event on the screen.

Anyway, as I just said, this solution doesn't seems really
comfortable, and seems a über-workaround.

Just FYI
