How many upvotes will it take for the focus stealing prevention stuff in mutter/gnome-shell to be removed/made configurable? Asking for a friend.

@mjog do you have a link to a more detailed explanation?

@steko Nah, woudn't want to cause the issue to closed because people were actually commenting on it.

@federicomena when effectively every time it's activated it's a false positive and that happens effectively every time an app is activated, because the API requirements to avoid it are often impossible to fulfill.

@mjog one just needs a timestamp from the UI event that caused a new window to appear!

@federicomena yeah I know, I know, but as I said that API requirement is often difficult/impossible to fulfil.
