[wmii] Opening windows without focus (Was: Several Questions)

Hello Everybody,

First off, many thanks for the software. I tried some of the
predecessors, then recently version 3.5 but went back to fvwm because
of a few annoyances (mostly with how windows that wanted to float were
handled; pidgin, gimp, etc). I did love the whole view concept so I
gave it another try when I saw version 3.6 in Gentoo's portage.

I'm very impressed. Most things handle really well and while I still
have a few things I'd like to fix, wmii feels great and I look forward
to work and play with it.

A recent email to the list raised a question that I've wanted to ask:

Is there any mechanism in wmii 3.6 to open windows without giving them
focus? If not, how about in the snapshot?

I have this script that runs through a few videos and displays them in
a small window in a corner of my screen so I can have it play in the
background. Each time a new video starts, it takes focus from the
application that I was working with. I'm frequently typing which can
mess up the player.

Again; thanks,
