all you have to do to emulate this, is to translate and add at
the end of configurerequest() function the following pseudocode

    if (c && c:is_the_currently_focused_client) focus(c);

as I mentioned before, that didn't solve the problem in monsterwm
it just hid it until somebody understands it, so we can have a
proper solution.
