Alt+click should raise with raise-on-click disabled

Bug Description

This might seem counter-intuitive but this is the behaviour exhibited by metacity. Alt+drag moves a window alt+middle-drag resizes it. Alt+click is an equivalent command to the window manager to /explicity/ raise a window. The raise-on-click option should only describe the /implicit/ raising when a click is directed to the application itself.

Sebastien, I think you processed the precise merge and the missing file comment referred to the oneiric one. That branch looked ok but the diff on the merge proposal didn't. I think I had already noticed and fixed the branch but didn't realise I needed to resubmit the merge proposal. I have now done this. Is that ok?

This bug is still present in the (as of today) current trusty thar release. I really would love to have a working WM setting as follows:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences focus-mode \'sloppy\'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences raise-on-click false

But the 2nd setting disables ANY raising of windows (I tried xterm and gnome-terminal).

Is there any hope that this will be fixed?
