        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

If you don't use click-to-focus, Emacs can gain and lose focus every time
you move the mouse, even inadvertently.  It would be very bad for this to
have any lasting effect.  I think such hooks should not exist.

    This allows saving all buffers on loss of focus.  (Alt-tabbing between
    an editor and browser is a popular workflow for web programmers.)

I think it is better to have Emacs control the change of focus
and define a command that saves buffers and switches focus
(if that's what you like to do).
