"Being able to work on more images at the same" does indeed mean

You could let the open and visible images you're working on at the same time
float all over the screen. Just as the user wants it. Be it underneath or over
the toolbox. ( a preference would be good for that.) 
Paint shop pro does it that way, so does photoshop and my old pre-GIMP
software Picture Publisher did it that way too, and they are all single window
interfaces. It's definitely not something that can't be done.
