because the world does not work like that.
this is a theme where our target audience is split 50–50:
half love one-window and hate multi-window, half love
multi-window and hate one-window.
that is why we will have _one_ setting in the View menu, that
sets the overall strategy to either one-window or multi-window.
all further behaviour follows from that.
first rule of interaction design is that you have to exclude
your own preferences...
