That MDI integration was just the first step, looking at the details you 
quickly see it's quite unfinished in many issues (accels, Window menu, 
toplevel mode, tool-views, restoring the docking session, on/off 
checkboxes for views in the View menu, etc.).
Don't hesitate to continue the work, noone seriously works on it. 
Although it's a key component.
