Correct. I think we don't have a handler for getting the focus to be  
exactly where you clicked yet, but I believe we can focus the field, at  
least. This will make things almost perfect, and we'll have to wait until  
a later release of KSS to get the precise cursor positioning.

Right, the whole reason why I kept pushing this before the beta is because  
I want to see how people respond to it. Godefroid has been kicking ass  
lately, and it's 95% of the way there (still missing: focus on click  
+ support save on enter in one-line fields).
