When I use "emacs &", it doesn't mean I want to

doing in the shell and use emacs later. In my usage, it means that
I want to be _able_ to switch back and forth between emacs and
shell commands, but I want to use emacs immediately.
When I type "ooffice file.odt &" it doesn't mean I want to stop all
on anything else until openoffice gets around to talking to me. if I
type "gthumb image.jpg &" it means I want to see the image, but I don't
necessarily want to type at it. I have to say that the new focus
behavior has improved my life considerably. I hope it doesn't go away.
