Because some people are *used to it*. Why force them to learn a whole new way of doing things all at once when they can instead quickly make GNOME work the way they are used to?

Also, not everyone likes focus-follows-mouse. I tend to switch between the two because sometimes click-to-focus just "works better" for me; other times, focus-follows-mouse ("sloppy focus" style) "works better" for me. It depends on what I'm doing.

"I don't like it, therefore it's bad and I should flame people who want it" is a lousy way to decide UI issues.
