I agree that the behaviour of focusn doesn't make much sense for
scripting purposes via the fifo.

It was designed that way because Mod+n should always focus the n-th
window, i.e. the one with #n in the title, in the current layout.

For scripting purposes your version makes perfect sense. Depending on
whether you also use the Mod+n functionality you might want to duplicate
the function instead of modifying focusn directly.

Are your changes / scripting commands online somewhere?
