Also seems to work with XEmacs in click-to-focus mode.  I am running
Debian as well, Sawfish and XEmacs from unstable.

It is quick, particularly when you are typing: you just shove the
mouse, you don't need to grab it well enough to push a button.  It is
also naturally independent of other functions: you don't need to think
whether the click will pass through to the application or not.

The flip side is that other methods of changing focus, such as window
cycling or a popup automatically getting focused, cause focus to end
up in a different window than the pointer, which is an anomaly.  It
can be avoided by warping the pointer, but that is also confusing.
