How is `auto-raise-mode' different from `raise-frame'? IOW, if you want
to obsolete the former, you might just as well obsolete the latter.

In any case, I thought `raise-frame' was supposed to work on Windows at
least, maybe also OS X and some other environments I don't use.

When `raise-frame' fails but the WM supports EWMH, the following has
worked for me:

(defadvice raise-frame (around wmctrl activate)
  (if (eq (window-system (ad-get-arg 0)) 'x)
      (x-send-client-message nil 0 (ad-get-arg 0)
                             "_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW" 32 '(1))

So ISTM fixing `raise-frame' would be a more appropriate solution.
