If I remember correctly one main issue was that with Qt4 vertical text in the 
tabs for the tooldocks are (were ?) not possible.

Personally I liked the ideal mode very much, with automatic closing of the 
tooldocks when you selected what you needed (which is not anymore the case 
with simple ideal).

I for one like to have basically all room for editing and having tabs/docks 
only open when actually doing something in them.
