I don't think so.

But it wouldn't be hard to switch the focus in an external using the 
XSetInputFocus command from libX11.

However, I have never tried it, and I wonder whether it will lock the 
focus to that window, because the «fullscreen» Gem window uses the 
override_redirect option (of X11), which tells the window manager to back 
off and not touch the window.

Anyway, what I implemented to replace most uses of override_redirect in 
GridFlow ([#out x11]) is a message named «border» that you specify anytime 
while the window is open, and which toggles the border, using a window 
manager option standard called MWM Hints.
