Because my mail did speak about Christian's idea of having this support
only on the WM side, if we
handle the stuff in the libs, that is no problem, but only having some
tabbing code in the WM without the
possibility of talking with the WM in a sane was is no way to replace
the current mdi code in the apps.
My whole point is that we need some lib support to handle that right and
to give the apps some way to
talk in a easy to use way with the wm about where and how to place the
windows, where to tab, where to "split", ....
