Shouting doesn't make your point more convincing.

Changing the value of a variable can have an effect. Apparently, the only
effect of _setting this variable to non-nil_ is that that makes the mouse
follow the frame. (Is there another user-noticeable effect?)

And what might the code do with that information? What is the
user-observable change in behavior due to a change in value of the variable?
That information is important to understanding what this variable is for.
