But the Mac/Windows "just works according to context" option can't
currently be made available as a choice, I don't think. You didn't

It's somewhat different, as it's specific to a button click, and
doesn't apply to any other method of focusing the window. Also it has
to do with the whole "activate a window" action (including raise) not
just keyboard focus.
