	Hmm, I must be looking at it cross eyed then. I had already been there. What I
	see are:

	Give focus to windows even when they have not asked for it ?????

	Does click to focus mode pass the click through to the window (Well I don;t
	want click to focus mode)

	Focus each window when first displayed (who cares)

	Transient windows inherit focus from their parent (probably a good idea)

	Raise windows when they are focuse (No, I don;t want that).

	Here is what I want:

	Focus follows mouse.

	Windows are raised _only_ whne you click on the border.

	Can U get there from here?
