What I meant was imagine you have an unselected but focused window (e.g.
a vkbd) and an unfocused but selected other window (e.g. a terminal). If
both get the same border, how would you know which one will close if you
press Shift+Mod+c? (Except looking at the window title and guessing.)

> What's wrong with focussing the next in the stack?

Instead of focusing the last focused window saved in foc, if I understand
you right? Wouldn't that make using a virtual keyboard pretty hard?
