now that this discussion fires up and that it has been casually

I also see that this can easily can get out of hand, but I am
committed no to not let it. That means that I will be aiming for
a system with a low number of settings that naturally follows
users' actions and keeps layouts together.
side-by-side comparison: we'll see if that can be done without
confusion about what the active image is.
a mix of multiple windows with multiple tabs: we'll see if that can
be done without confusion about how the next (new) image opens
(tab or window?).
I do not intent to introduce more than 2 new menu items in the menubar,
so that really puts the brakes on how out of hand this is going to get.
