When moving/resizing a window that is not in the foreground, there should be an option to toggle between:
- raising the window to the foreground
- retaining its position in the Z-order

    On second thought, I don't think an option is needed, and that windows should always retain their current position in the Z-order. The current development version implements this behaviour.

    If anyone really wants an option to raise windows on moving/resizing, please contact me!

    I would actually like this as an option instead of defaulting to not doing such; Xfwm on Linux implements the raising behavior on moves.

    Very well. Reopened! Should get this done in the next version, but no idea when that'll be.

    Please can you add an option (like you have for the scroll wheel) to not do smart z-ordering on a movement, since I don't think I'm the only one who was fine with it the other way (though I have a friend who really likes the new way).
