There is the autoraise keyword, which if set to False might do what you want if you are lucky.  It only works on linux (see issue 8232) and only with some browsers, and even then the window manager may ignore the hint.

If you can figure out a way to make it work better, please feel free to reopen this issue and post a patch.  It would be great to see that module get some improvements.

I'm closing this "works for me" because the feature exists, but obviously that's a bit of a half-truth where this module is concerned :)
