Bug Description

The Unity design for 12.04 shows that Application Menu will be configurable to be integrated into individual windows and so this would be a perfrect opportunity to reintroduce Focus Follows Mouse as many power users use this feature. It was an annoyance when the menu was implemented into the top panel as it meant the menu changes if you dragged the cursor over a window when attemting to access the menu. I personally, and I'm sure many others would too, would like to see this feature introduced into Unity to make it more power user friendly.

This is not a duplicate. The other bug reports it not working when manually setting from the command line. My report is because there is no way to turn it on in the UI. It needs to be implemented into the System Settings somewhere to allow power users to use this feature. It is a different report and could be addressed for the 12.04 release before the UI freeze.

I'm afraid it needs ccsm again, general tab focus&raise behaviour. At least it works here.
