Excellent! I quickly tried out the new window-switching dialog,
grow-to-edge-shrinking and focus prevention, and in my excitement I
redid my rc.xml file. I'll post it here in case anyone's interested.
The config includes all the coolness I've been able to think of and
find that's possible with openbox:
 * focus follows mouse essentials
 * never raise a window unless explicitly asked to
 * Ctrl-Alt-A raises/lowers window - I use this key combo *a lot*
 * some execute actions - ctrl-alt-T for aterm, etc
 * window resize/move with Win+arrows and Alt+arrows

What makes this config interesting is I've included Clay's awesome
numeric pad window movement bindings from
as well as the irssi-style window raise from (you'll need
the irssi-focus program from that page)

Being able to use the GUI perfectly with the keyboard is fantastic.
The config also works fine with focus-follows-mouse disabled, for
those who are creeped out by that.

If there's any particular openbox config setup that makes *your* day
easier I'd love to see it.

 chrooting/chaining Clay's bindings so you can go into a "manage mah
windows" chroot.

There is symmetry in chaos, and chaos in overmuch order.
