I keep on hearing about "focus stealing prevention" in other window
managers, any idea how that works? Well, the principle behind it,
because too many times what I hear is that it does not work (no idea
if the principle is wrong, or the code is buggy... that is what I am
getting every time I search, instead of something explaining it in
general terms, "so you can implement it in your wm").

About clicking (it was in original Daniel's post), I think next
release should include the new mode enter + click (also enter-exit +
click if anybody interested writes it).
