What about a user-interface like DreamWeaverMX2004 - with splitter
panes that you can click once to make them slide to the position you
want.  Like Mozilla browser's side-bar on the left that you can click
to slide in and click to move it out of the way - with different
splitted panes inside that side bar.  DreamWeaverMX2004 (DMX2K4) has
similar side-bars (or splitter panes) but each of the tabs appearing
combined in any splitter pane can be taken out as well to form new
splitter panes or shove it in a different splitter pane.  I did see
this splitter-pane functionality in QT - so the talk!  Don't you think
that would be a nice-to-have feature?  As that meets almost _all_ the
GUI feature requests I have read so far.

IMHO changing GUI should be easier if you guys are using design
patterns such as command, etc.
