IIRC, you were the one to propose _not_ following a link in a
non-selected window, and I initially said it made sense (so I
implemented it unconditionally).

Personally, I got irritated by that, and others said it would
be confusing to novices too -- so I changed it to an option.

Of course, I can remove it all-together if nobody finds it

But maybe it would make more sense to have an option would could make
a mouse click in a non-selected window _only_ select that window
rather than also setting point (or following links or whatever).

That would be analogue to the x-mouse-click-focus-ignore-position for
frame focus.
