Give focus to clicked application, when using mouse on Workspace

Description (last modified by mmadia)


When using the mouse to change workspaces, one should be able to give focus (and raise to front) to the clicked application in Workspace's graphic. For example in the following image, I should be able to click "Terminal 1: headers: ssh" in the 8th workspace and upon switching to that workspace, Terminal should have focus and be ready for input. Also, one should be able to click Vision (the #haiku window), to switch to the 1st workspace, give focus to Vision and raise it to the front.

Currently, Workspaces will only give focus to the last focused application when using keyboard shortcuts.

I guess the usefulness of this feature depends on the size of the workspace preview. But even if small, it wouldn't really harm to have either :-)
