>From what I heard the main usecase for this multiple windows stuff is when you 
have two screens and you want two documents, or two views of the same 
document, on two screns. Maybe this use case could be served by basically 
using what split view does, but displaying one of views in a new window?

That's another issue with multiple processes by the way: When you edit the 
same documents in your two processes, you will get lots of "another process 
changed this document" warnings...
