Actually, now that I think about it...  I've been inconvenienced (is
that a sufficiently weak term?) slightly (just to be on the safe side)
by this often enough that I now hit F2 F2 (my personal binding for
other-window) instead of clicking with the mouse just to avoid
positioning point.

So a user option to prevent point moving when switching windows with
the mouse would be cool.

(The modeline also does this, but it's a bit hard to hit.)
