AFAIK the reason is simply that Sublime doesn't provide a hook for that.
If that has changed meanwhile this shouldn't be too hard...

Sorry, for not taking a closer look which of those might still be needed
when I removed them :(

How much harder? compared to getting ideal to have drag+drop support and
letting the user choose the toolview that fills the corner...

IMHO we don't need both, we just need one of the two with all features
implemented. And from my POV what the dockwidgets have that our ideal
mode doesn't have (yet) is drag'n'drop for the toolviews and somehow
defining which toolview gets the corner-space. Ideally the latter could
be done "on-the-fly", but a plain config option that needs a restart
would be sufficient as well.

Yeap, you're doing an amazing job.


Someone whom you reject today, will reject you tomorrow.
