Yeah.. its all well and good to add new features, but some people
genuinely do prefer this.  i run X at an absurd resolution, and for me to
move the mouse to the top of the window every time i want to use a menu
item would simply be annoying.. also, i think there are alot of people
that use mouse-follows-focus out there...

I AM assuming that such an feature WOULD be implemented as optional..
