I would suggest a more "flat" structure. For example, the "ClickToFocus"
option should be in the "root" section and not under
General->Focus->ClickToFocus (I assume there can only be one ClickToFocus
option anyway, one Focus sub-section and one General section).

A flat structure is also easier for other parsers/writers, such as a
configuration frontend.

Another suggestion is to extend the BorderlessWindows option, and make a
section for each window, as in:

<Window xclock>
 ShowBorders No
 Sticky Yes

<Window ickle_main>
 Sticky Yes
 InitialState Minimized # Maximized, Normal, ...

This requires a bit more code, but could be quite useful.
