Or are you saying, you don't think any change of X.L.Minimize is
necessary and one could just do it all in the configuration with the
functions that BoringWindows exports?
I guess so, but I feel focus skipping of minimized windows is an
integral part of X.L.Minimize, so the module might as well do the work
itself of making sure the correct windows are marked as boring.
