Is possible to move the cursor following the floating window? this way
the focus will never be lost.

BTW it is possible to move/resize a window to a certain position with
this patch? or it's only absolute?

absolute resizals could be useful, you can "store" certain position/sizes
of windows and move then to these positions when you need them. As tiling,
but floating and for certain values (like a vertical bar for the gaim roster
at the left of the screen, or so..)

Can be 'casted' and use't as a pointer to the array.
