Stopping apps grabbing focus

Hi,

Does anyone know of a way to stop ALL windows apps from grabbing the foreground focus? I've got a number of apps that like to pop up when they want to..

TweakUI has an option to set the current window active, that is wherever the mouse is has the focus. I think it is a horrible feature, but I have a friend who wouldn't be without it....

That is in the X-Mose section. It also has a "Prevent applications from stealing focus" which causes the apps icon to flash in the taskbar instead of taking over - which sound like what you want.
