F4 external editor - shell alias does not work

Unfortunately my external editor cannot be called with a single command,
but after calling it I need to make sure the window is foregrounded via
an additional wmctrl call, like so:

/usr/bin/scite "$@"
wmctrl -a scite

Actually, I defined a shell alias handling this case, but MC does not
recognise its existence or at lease does not use it. I seems to need a
"real" file to call, so I had to additionally create a script with the
same content, which I dislike.

Is this a bug/shortcoming or a feature?
