The focus-highlight is only useful when the user is actually using the
keyboard (which isn't that often), it would be distracting otherwise. I
think GTK+ got this right.

In this particular case, it's probably because pressing alphanumeric
characters starts search in the GTK+ control, so it couldn't be used for
editing. I'm not sure if the win32 listview control has anything like
that, to be honest.

More generally, I think it's geared a bit towards *occasional* editing.
