HI all, with Morphic-mt.1154, Marcel did a great upgrade to the
focus-related preferences introduced last October.  He was able to
reduce the number of preferences from four to three, while eliminating
all semantic ambiguity between them AND keeping all of the existing
functionality.  The old preferences:

   Focus Follows Mouse
   Window Active On First Click
   Windows Raise On Click

have been replaced with just these three:

    Windows' Contents Are Always Active
    Windows' Controls Are Always Active
    Windows Raise On Any Click

and yet every combination of variability among the dimensions of
z-ordering, widget focus, and window focus are still available, except
now, unambiguously.  Nice work!
