Ok, the way I favorize after the feedback we got so far is, that
I'm going to make focus-follows-mouse client-window related and
not frame-window related. This avoids the effects with stacking
mode and it also allows to add a raise flag to focus() which
allows to only raise a window on click ($MODKEY-Button1 or
titlebar click) and never raising on sloppy-focus. No big deal.

Ok thx.

Yes, I ask @wmii.de if someone is still working on them? If not,
I could reserve tonight some time to polish the man pages.
