2. An option that makes all NSPanels visible regardless of what application has focus. This would solve the other half of the "GNUstep doesn't work with focus follows mouse" problem.

The problem with this is that it will increase screen clutter.

Unfortunately if your WM is set for focus follows mouse or sloppy focus, the current behavior makes NSPanels almost unreachable, as they will disappear before your mouse can even get to them. When I started using GNUstep this bit me a lot, and I had to change my setting, which took some getting used to.

The NeXT-style and Apple-style menus also do not get along with focus follows mouse. When you move the mouse outside the application the menu disappears. Seeing as this kind of focus is common on X desktops, I think fixing these 2 things would go a long way for some.
