That means double the work, for IMHO no gain. I mean if we can provide
drag'n'drop and multiple toolviews on the same border visible at the
same time, then we already have dockwidgets. But its dockwidgets that
auto-collapse, where the buttons take less space and scale better (the
tab texts in qt dockwidgets are just cut and the ellipsis added). 

Whats your reasoning to keep the dockwidget mode? Oh and just in case I
wasn't clear: I'm not saying throwing dockwidgets out the window right
now, I'm saying to throw them away once we have a proper replacement
(i.e. at least dnd working)


It was all so different before everything changed.
