Now you again call MDI apps non-standard ? Wasn't there now the agreement that
MDI is "good" and usable in some areas ? Wasn't the whole disscussion here
about how to strip the different mdi codebases away to have one default way
of handling mdi in kdelibs instead of the different apps to increase the
usability and GUI of that apps (as there would be one unique style for
handling mdi then) ?
