As for the autoraise, I would definitely like to see Alexandre's idea
prototyped. In fact it would be nice if you could make the shake be
the first of maybe more mouse gestures. So in other words maybe the
"shake detection" could go into some sort of MouseGestures.cpp?
While we're at it, could we make Autoraise not implicitly steal input
focus until necessary? One reason that feature is immediately turned
off here is because it drives me insane that if I accidentally mouse
up there, whatever I was typing in no longer has focus.

The Deskbar window already has B_AVOID_FOCUS set, so that might also just be a bug in the app_server.

It doesn't. It has B_AVOID_FRONT. In my mouse mode patch, I did add
B_AVOID_FOCUS, as this improves behaviour already quite a lot. A proper
API for auto-raise would be very welcome though.

I'm not sure the shake-to-raise will be very handy. The time it takes to
shake the pointer will be pretty close to the delay, no?

While we're at it. I dislike the fact that when clicking on an
appication's submenu title makes the menu closes. Can we make a click on
a submenu title open the submenu if no action is associated with the
submenu title itself?
