Thanks to the freedom systems provide (you know, "configurability
sucks" [1]), you can create a "focus follows 'dead' mouse", if the mouse
is moving fast, focus is not changed, if it slows down or stops, then
it changes. John Kodis coded stop-focus for SF and posted it to
Sawfish list as "Re: Bugs and Features" in 2001 01 09 (I can repost
the file if people wants).

I think someone already tried that and was not accepted due API
changes or schedules or something like that. If he is reading it,
please try to make it an option for GNOME 2.0.

[1]: Bad defaults suck. Lots of options just make more things
possible, aka more happy users.
