Remove Desktop entry from Alt+Tab list

I've recently begun using Windows 7, and I don't like having the Desktop showing up as another application in the alt-tab menu. (If I need to switch to the Desktop I'll use Windows-D or the right-hand side of the taskbar. Treating it as an application destroys the metaphor of the Desktop being behind your applications.)

Is there any way to get rid of this from the alt-tab menu? (Without resorting to a registry hack to switch to the XP alt-tab menu.)

No, this is not possible. – Ramhound Dec 16 '11 at 17:34

I can't find any way to do it besides reverting to the XP alt+tab. Everywhere I'm reading says it's not possible. I thought there might be third party alt+tab functionality applications that wouldn't have it, but I can't even find any of those.
