I think that might lead to confusion when users are wondering why some
windows open in front, and others open behind. At least when they all
open behind it's consistent.

My two cents,
n0dalus.

A solution to that would be to open all windows in front, but not transfer focus to the
front window if  there still was keyboard activity in the terminal.

This alone would be a great solution to me. That way you can click on the window if you already have the mouse in hand.

This happens to me a lot when launching mplayer from the console.

When the keyboard activity stops, for a second or so, transfer focus automatically to the new window.
