[Lazarus] BringToFront with forms

TCustomForm.Show automatically calls BringToFront, what may be okay in 
most cases, but...

1) The IDE passes around an explicit BringToFront:boolean with many 
methods - why?

2) What about parented or docked forms? Is this already handled, or do 
we need another method ShowClient to (also) make an docked client 
visible, when e.g. docked into a notebook? Do we need to call 
ScrollIntoView explicitly, when residing in a scrollable container?
