You said "it's hard to imagine how such a thing could work", which I
took to mean roughly "I will try hard to find something wrong with any
patch to implement this."  Was I wrong?

On a more substantive note perhaps, it is true that focus-follows-mouse
is very different from click-to-focus.  So different that changing a few
code paths here and there depending on the flag is probably not enough
to really make it work.
