Focus Follows Mouse

Being an old-school UNIX guy I prefer to have GUI window focus follow wherever the mouse is pointed. I don't like to have to click to focus a window. I also don't like to have a window raised unless I want it to. The following commands will configure Gnome with focus follows mouse.

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode 'mouse'
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /apps/metacity/general/auto_raise false
