It depends on many aspects.  I don't expect `C-x C-f` to affect
focus, so this "suboptimal" looks OK to me (with "me" wearing my cap
of Emacs user using a WM where the focus follows the mouse).
It would also be OK (and probably better) to raise the frame F2, since
it might be (partly) hidden by F3.
