Here, using focus follow mouse on a crowded desktop:

* automatically give focus top newly created window -> xlogo is on top
and focused
* automatically give focus top newly created window unchecked -> xlogo
is on bottom and unfocused.

This is with or without “automatically raise windows when they receive
focus“. I guess this checkbox only matters when the focus is given by a
mouse/keyboard action?

But i don't think there's a “raise new window” option.
