Other mouseless apps work...

Its an unfortunate and depressing reality, but adding mouse support to
ratpoison isn't going to make it better.

The problem with focusing the window under the pointer is that you
then get a big fat cursor on your window. banishing the mouse with a
quick flick of the wrist or with :banish does a nice job of getting
the cursor out of my face. I haven't used unclutter but it could prove
useful in this case. Perhaps a command that focused the window with
the pointer in it could solve this...

Let us not forget that the window does have mouse focus...
