Yes, that's possible (but the traffic on ther socket server will
be very high and slow the whole focussing down if you
don't use a native 9P library and stick to wmiir calls).

Besides this, the approach is racy, because during the time of
having choosed a clients title and the attempt to find and focus
it, it might have disappeared already...
