This issue was actually discussed before -- IIRC it was decided that
implementing this behaviour would cause even more confusion
(essentially because the 'functionally' same dockable is not actually
the same dockable. The other technical problem is that there can be
more than one instance of some dockables instantiated, in which case
there is no clear way to decide which 'old' positioning and parameters
to use.. this would certainly be very confusing.)
