no I mean I want to show a little preview of the "embedded view"  
while dragging

no, the window manager can do it only for top level widgets. You need  
to use Qt for child widgets.

well, they are a bit different. For instance, you maximize a view  
with a double click on a titlebar (I love it) and you have perspectives.

I like Qt dock widgets too, I think they are great. But, I'm not not  
sure I want to use dock widgets in an IDE.

I don't know what you are talking about. MIT is compatible with GPL  
and LGPL. I'm already using MIT in r++ and kdev-pg and   *you* are  
using MIT too. Look at the copyright header of qmake.g
