Yes, that would make sense because if it's a modal dialog, you can't
type in the main application window anyway. That's the only case I see
where "stealing" the focus is OK, and it's not really stealing because
that's what a modal dialog does *by definition*.

The only question remaining is what would make sense when a new window
opens right where the mouse is currently located (assuming focus follows
mouse). My best guess would be to not give it focus until the mouse
moves.
