I'm not afraid to code, but havn't touched any window managers yet, so 
if you could give me some pointers into the code, where I should start 
to hack away that would greatly help me.

But I also could live with a scenario where different desktops have 
different focus rules. Now I have no idea if this would be any easier to 
implement or more/less efficient than a per-window handling of different 
focus policies.
