My understanding was it would just give the window focus without
raising, for which a click on the tab is required. I think that's my
preferred behaviour (windows stay where they have been placed in the
Z-order, but things can still be easily copied/pasted into "background"
windows - basically FFM advantages without an accidental nudge of the
mouse meaning input gets sent to the wrong window).

The "left click to front", "right click to back" should definitely be
maintained though. If one of the modes doesn't do that I'd say it's a bug.
