Ok, I am looking forward to trying it.

BTW, setting automatically give focus to new windows contradicts to the focus follows mouse policy. Focus can not follow both settings in every case. I think new window raise setting would be more appropriate than new window focus setting. If focus follows mouse is not used, focus could be given to new window depending on whether new window is risen or not. Or do window manager tweaks concerning focus affect this? Those focus tweak settings need some mouse hover tip or other describing text in my opinion.
