Interesting to see the focus-follows-mouse and no-autoraise combination
mentioned several times. In contrast, I use focus-follows-mouse with
autoraise (with 0 delay). It allows me to have a large image window that
partly covers 2 palette windows on the sides. Quick access to tools and
settings and large image view at the same time :)

Now from my understanding, the reason peter doesn't want single-window
with tabs combined with split views is simply that it would make it
unclear, which image the palettes and menu refer to. No matter how you
would try to deal with that, you always get a huge pile of additional

Tempting to say: Allow split views via shift/ctrl-selecting tabs, have
all commands either affect both, or for those where that doesn't make
sense, disable them. Or duplicate the menu per split view. Also have the
split appear in the layers, channels and paths palettes. Just thinking
aloud :)
