... or how to use a complex GUI for a simple task.
At least the simple case (single view / splitted views, i.e. the "old stuff") should remain
as simple as it was before. I think that by using kdockwidget it will end up with this 
additional frame titlebar - which we decided against long ago.
I don't care much how things look like when people start using tabs, but before they
do so, no additional GUI item should appear.
