Yes, but since setting focus is problematic in general (because of the
many different ways it can be handled depending on the GUI and window
manager and age of the captain), we usually try to refrain from doing it
at all: it's usually a source of problems even if it looks like
a solution in the short term.

IIRC `raise-frame` is often a good middle ground which gets most of the
benefit of `select-frame-set-input-focus` with much fewer problems.
