Not even QDockWidget can do this. And you can "maximize" a tool which gives 
you mostly a really big konsole. Would you want to have the Konsole in a Tab 
instead? I bet it would be possible to add to sublime, someone would just have 
to add the code. But well, it will definitely require changes as currently only 
the DockWidget areas (left, right, top, bottom) are supported...
