No option to disable raise on click

Bug Description

Binary package hint: metacity

The metacity configuration GUI has an option to enable focus-follows-mouse mode, but there is no option to disable raise-on-click. As the whole point of focus-follows-mouse is to avoid having to raise windows when interacting with them, this is a major flaw. Currently I have to use gconf to make focus-follows-mouse useable.
