Reading all the comments (including Sven's saying that tabbed windows
isn't too difficult to implement) I can see that maybe a switchable
interface between tabbed and floating would be the most appropriate
solution. The question here is how to make them live together without
damaging the UI consistency. And how to deal with some of the current
problems with overlapping windows (how the utility windows obstaculize
the working canvas when it is maximized, dragging the canvas beyond the
image borders to avoid overlapping, etc).
I don't think that making tabbed and floating live together is a very
hard problem -- Firefox does that just fine (and it sounds like Opera
does it even better).
As far as overlapping windows go, I live with it -- I use focus
strictly follows mouse
