Focusing by keyboard (focusprev(), focusnext()) calls restack()
which raises the focused client to the top of the specific layer

Focusing by mouse (enternotify()) doesn't calls restack(),
simply because this would have the annoying side effect that any
floating window is raised on focus all the time which might
make specific popup client windows hard to access if some
fullscreen or very big window is focused (e.g. by accident).

That's it already. Nothing complex in my eyes.
