New Window and Focus related preferences

Chris Muller-4
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:

   mouseOverForKeyboardFocus
   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!

Hi, there.

#mouseOverForKeyboardFocus is still there and works as before. Tobias just noticed an inconsistency when

[x]   Windows' Contents Are Always Active
[ ]    mouseOverForKeyboardFocus

Because the window colors adapt to the current mouse position but the widgets *inside* an window do not automatically get focus. Tobias especially noticed that in combination with text morphs. I started typing and nothing happened.

Best,
Marcel
