Although I have a strong opinion against click-to-focus, it's probably
the most widely used default and "expert users" are used to changing
this setting anyway, so the default makes sense.
However, it would be great, if the window manager's focus policy could
be determined and the default changed acccordingly (since
activate-on-focus will complicate things with a point-to-focus policy)
