That was only a temporary package. It had reappeared and has been dropped
in F14. Currently, "control-center" Obsoletes "control-center-extra".
My lazy work-around is to configure Metacity directly via GConf:
$ gconftool-2 --set -t bool /apps/metacity/general/auto_raise true
$ gconftool-2 --set -t int /apps/metacity/general/auto_raise_delay 700
$ gconftool-2 --set -t string /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode mouse
