Let's be honest with ourselves - the time of the "all SDI" KDE is long gone.

Konq has splitters and tabs, even KOffice as a splitter (and koshell for more MDI),
Konsole has tabs, KDevelop, Quanta, etc. etc.

Let's have consistent MDI instead of having inconsistent MDI plus the illusion
that SDI is the consistency (which is definitely not the case anymore in KDE).
