Not to be a troll, but that exact feature in KDE, is one of the things that keeps me running KDE.
In KDE with focus-follows-mouse - you can give a delay - so if you jump past a window (like firefox) the focus is not taken - as long as it is within that configurable delay. works nicely for me :)
Also - if I in konsole start xclock - and the mouse stays over the konsole - xclock does not get focus, simply because it started.
So it seems it should be doable for Gnome as well.
