Having the open-files-list on the left and _one_ view on the right is not real 
MDI if I follow your logic. It all depends on how you configure kate. I have 
to admit that the new (default) viewmode is rather ugly though.

I'm all for using Tabs or in rare cases splitting views (good for visual 
compare :)) but I am totally against classes allowing the window-in-window 
scheme like what was known as winblows 3.x.
