Oups. I had a look at this bug report, well, sounds like a tempting idea for systems with low 
resources. When clicking on young hickory, you can make the main window disappear already. Well, 
I guess that the allocated memory resources are still used in the background, but at least CPU 
consumption should be down like this. Would it not be possible to get rid of the memory consuming 
resources while the main interface is minimized and reload the main interface if one clicks young 
hickory? Well, I don't know anything about the implementation, would be however unfortunate if 
because of this one would have to void the idea of having only one interface active at the time.  
But you know what, maybe one could allow for more than one interface active at a time (like is 
implemented now) but only for young hickory-style interfaces as for most people people, this kind 
of dualism is probably not disturbing. However, a full-blown winamp and a kjofol window avtive at 
the same time I find disturbing. What do you think?
