Hi Daniel and Carlos,

If we restrict imports on ICCMFocus (load it up in ghci
-ddump-minimal-imports and use the imports in the file it spits out)
you won't get any compile errors regardless of whether core has that
patch [0] applied.

For the next release, I think we should take care of that java
situation in core. Then ICCMFocus could just be removed / replaced by
functions that do nothing and (and have deprecated pragmas).

Finally, even if we don't use your code, thanks for prompting this discussion.
