You're likely rather looking for a way to configure your WM to handle the this 
shortcut instead of the other?

What *might* work is a daemon interpreting the event to XTestFake*Event
Alt+LMB, but if eg. the WM tracks the mouse button condition, it won't
be cheated by two presses w/o a release or still consider the mode
switch (is it or is it the meta/win key?) pressed and not act etcetc.
ie. you need to know the exact behavior of the client you wish to cheat.

Cheers,
Thomas
