that's interesting! I'm waiting for focus-follows-brain as well …

Recently, I've been experimenting with making the caret blink briefly
after re-focusing (having a non-blinking caret otherwise):

events.connect(events.FOCUS, function()
  buffer.caret_period = 500
  timeout(1, function()
    buffer.caret_period = 0
    return false
