Oh, crap. I didn't even realize I was coming across that way. Sorry about that, Jon. /me goes and bashes his head into the wall as penance
For what it's worth, I really did mean to come across as "the request as you've written probably isn't what you mean--could you clarify?" with a really verbose explanation of why I think he might mean something different. (I think he was getting at the fact that he didn't like the default of focusing new windows in the cases where there is no user interaction between launch and appearance of the window or when we don't know enough about when various user interactions occurred, but what he suggested encompassed way more--and I don't know if the extra stuff was intended or not. After working on a WM long enough you find that people request all kinds of variations of things and I really don't know what's being requested without getting more detail)
Other comments in this thread are similar; I think most all of them are getting at that specific default, but actually use examples that are tangentially related and/or include lots of other stuff that may or may not be intended. I really am trying to understand what the real issue is.
Again, sorry for coming across that way.
