That would be good for consistency within KDE, but I feel that it would be not 
so well suited to a paint application. Kivio's auto-popup dockers are 
visually nice, but still have a few bugs, as well as usability issues. For 
Krita I would like to stay within Qt land until we move to Qt 4.0, when the 
issue will be different again. Until that time, dragging tabs from docker to 
docker is an easy win: it makes Krita work a bit more like Photoshop, making 
it more usable to people used to that particular application, and it isn't 
too hard to do.
