I'd like to rewrite it and apply less restrictive license (GPL+exception
or LGPL, Roberto?). We've talked about license in Ukraine, and 
decided that GPL + exception is better but it's still unclear what this 
exception is.

Ok, I can do that;) I already know that you want profiles to be switched at
runtime. That's definitely possible. Considering the UI, I have lots of 
wierd ideas and I started implemening some of them at aKademy.
First, the tabbar as it is now should go away.
There're two replacements for it. One is a filelist and second is Eclipse-like
tabbar without scrolling. I'm looking what can be done with the non-scrollable
tabbar approach now.
Second, newui will be modified to use splitters instead of QDockWindow's.
