Sounds fair, tho I think this would lose a bit (literally) of
information, so maybe we could call that focus-change-function with
a parameter indicating whether the change is one which increases the
number of frames-with-focus or one which decreases it, since AFAIK we
would have that information when we'd run the hook.

Maybe rather than frame-focused-p we should provide a frames-with-focus
function which directly returns the list of frames with focus.

Or a function terminal-frame-focus which returns the terminal's frame
that has focus (or nil), under the assumption that there can only be one
frame with focus in a given terminal.  So instead of looping through
`frame-list`, the Elisp code could loop through `terminal-list`.
It's probably not terribly important, but I often have O(100) frames on
my sole terminal, so the difference is not completely negligible.
