I assume you're joking, but humor often doesn't translate well into text.
So just so we're clear. New windows should not take focus if another window has the focus, unless the new window has to pop up over the current window because there's no other spot for it to pop up.
Actual, after reading some of the new posts, an even better policy might be this: New window should not take focus if another window has the focus, and a new window should not pop-up over a window that has the focus. If the new window has to use screen real-estate that the focused window has, it should pop-under the focused window.
