That is not as easy as it may sound.
You cannot just take parts a foreign code it the design behind it is so
different than yours.

Because mozillas window handling code would not have worked in Konqueror?
Opening a Tab or a window is very toolkit specific, I am pretty sure
there is nothing you can take from the mozilla code of this feature that
would work in Konqueror.

I don't think dre is implying such things.
But "ripping off" code is not very easy across toolkit and language
Developers could get an idea how to solve a certain problem, but it will
in most cases be easier to implement the solution yourself.
