I'm pretty sure that's not possible by just editing the configuration 
file, if you put Raise in the frame context, it will not pass the click to 
the application, but that might also make it a tiny bit harder to use any 
programs. i find it much better to never raise on clicks inside a program, 
and use mod4+click or my extra mouse button.
