yeah, FFM isn't half as useful if the windows auto-raise. it's nice
to be able to type in the little corner of a terminal window that's
sticking out behind something.

(now if I could just remember what it was that annoyed me about
sawfish focus behavior enough to get me to switch to click-to-focus...)

one thing, it would be nice if there was a way to get significantly
more visual feedback as to which window has the focus -- like, darken
the *whole* window instead of just changing the title bar color...
probably too much to wish for with the current architecture, though.
