A quick test I just did suggests that window-configuration-change-hook
isn't even called when switching from one window to another, e.g., with
`other-window' or one of the `windmove-*' commands.

I apologise if my initial description was too unclear. What I'd like to
know is if it's possible to detect when a window goes from being
selected to being not selected and vice versa. Or, alternatively, when a
buffer goes from being current to not current and vice versa. From what
I've been able to find on the internet, this isn't possible.

TIA
