  Shifting focus with the eyes does not shift the focus of the window
  manager. Shifting focus with my eyes to a window that is not focused
  by the wm does not allow me to interact/type into the window in 
  question. Focus follows mouse should implicitly mean that, simply,
  wherever the mouse goes, the focus goes - i.e., the mouse is your eyes.

  Whether there is a delay before the window actualy _raises_ is up to
  the user via a "raiseDelay" option. This is how focus follows mouse works,
  and for many good reasons.

  Am I alone here in this conviction?
