Hmmm, pretty sure I got that to work as I intended it, ... but
with slightly older configuration I think it may be a hair more

$ cd ~/.fvwm
$ grep -i '^style.*focus' config
Style *           FocusFollowsMouse
Style FvwmButtons Icon toolbox.xpm, ClickToFocus
Style XTerm       Icon xterm.xpm, SloppyFocus, IconBox -70 1 -1 -140
Style rxvt        Icon term.xpm, SloppyFocus, IconBox -70 1 -1 -140
Style *lock       NoTitle, NoHandles, Sticky, WindowListSkip, ClickToFocus
Style xbiff       NoTitle, Sticky, WindowListSkip, ClickToFocus
Style xcalc       Icon xcalc.xpm, NoButton 2,ClickToFocus
Style xman        Icon xman.xpm, ClickToFocus
Style xmag        Icon mag_glass.xpm, ClickToFocus
Style xgraph      Icon graphs.xpm, ClickToFocus
Style xmosaic     Color Green/Yellow, ClickToFocus
$ fgrep mytweaks config
read mytweaks
$ grep -i '^style.*focus' mytweaks
Style XTerm       Icon xterm.xpm, MouseFocus, IconBox -70 1 -1 -140
