Improve command injection (click forwarding)

description

Commands/Input should be forwarded to the cloned window in a more reliable way (using http://inputsimulator.codeplex.com for instance).

I can second that it would be nice to have a better way to get input to cloned Windows. Right now click-forwarding doesn't work by default for WPF applications, which keeps me from using OTR with Elpis.

It looks like the SendInput() API (used by InputSimulator and others) doesn't allow you to send keystrokes any window other than the active window. I'd imagine that trying to play focus tricks by pulling other windows into focus would break the OnTopReplica experience in some ways, such as by causing a video game or full screen application to lose focus.

I'll have to investigate later, as I'd still love to be able to click-foward to WPF applications.
