Is there any way to enable FFM?

As far as I can tell, it doesn't seem like it would be technically practical. With OS X's window manager, can a window be made active without bringing it to the front?
Even if it could, the applications would still have to redraw menu bars, so just moving the mouse pointer across the screen would thrash the system like crazy, and create all sorts of visual chaos. [/B]

Is it a coincidence that any window manager more advanced than TWM ( the WM x11 comes with) dropped FFM? Maybe it was too damn annoying.

Gah, the relentless posts from mac haters is getting to me...
But seriously, FFM is the worst system ever hacked.
Whenever I use X11 the challenge is always to determine which friggin window am I typing in.
In MacOS it's clearly evident which window is active, it's the foreground window which has active controls which belongs to the foreground application and has it's associated utility windows in the foreground.
