The policy originally used by TWM is actually "focus follows pointer";
it's the most traditional policy for X environments.

Sloppy focus is what you implemented now: Similar to "focus follows
pointer", except that the focus stays on the last window until a new one
is activated -- that's why it is called sloppy :-)

Probably you should call your switch SloppyFocus.
