Please note that GIMP does MDI (multiple document interface) already,
it just doesn't folllow the WiW (window in window) approach that some
people seem to prefer for obscure reasons.

A good window manager makes the window-in-window concept unnecessary.
However if someone wanted to develop such an approach for all the poor
users that are forced to use a not so advanced window manager, then it
should probably be addressed at the toolkit level.
