Well, you can undock & dock any docker, which turns it into a floating dialog.
That should be pretty much enough. I'm all in favour of simplicity (no,
really -- I'm a card-carrying Real User), so I don't like having four ways to
display non modal information about an image or a layer (the current three
being the statusbar, a docker panel and the image itself).

That's close to what Qt dockers offer. I still need to finish the code for the
library, but soon the docker palettes will be drag & droppable, and will
remember their position across sessions and between showing/hiding them.
I encourage everyone, by the way, to take a look at bibblepro. In many ways
it's a design nightmare, _but_ pro's really love it to death.
