OK. I'm make two wmii option focusmodel patches. Maybe, it can be
useful for anybody...

This option can switch focusmodel to 'sloppy' (default) or
'click-to-focus' for each managed and float layers separately. At
present you can wrote:

  wmiiwr write /ctl <<!
    focusmodel click click

  model ::= sloppy
          | click
  focusmodel <managed model> <floating model>

These patches intend for wmii+ixp-20080520 snapshot>, and for wmii-hg of

This code based on code by David McNab <>.
