Actually, it _is_ strictly an AS question.

You want to play with the various focus modes in your feel file.  You want
SloppyFocus, but you don't want the window to raise automatically.  So,
try using Sloppy focus, with ClickToRaise enabled, and AutoRaise disabled.  
In the version I'm running right now (1.5b4), that's fdeel.DEFAULT.
