I think the term single-window mode is potentially confusing.
It's how you dock the windows together that gives the user the
*perceived* single-window or multiple-window mode.
If implemented correctly the user that prefers a multiple-window mode gimp
see much difference from the existing gimp version to a gimp version that
Maybe after an install the gimp could start with a window layout (docking
that mirrors the existing multiple-window gimp layout; the user could then
together whatever undocked/floating/torn (terminology???) window he wanted;
his own single-window mode gimp.
This was one of the goals I was trying to achieve whilst writing the
curlyankles library; as I
could see merits in both multiple and single window layout strategies; without
having to tie a
user into either. How could I know how someone else wanted to work?
Therfore IMHO if implemented correctly single-window and multiple-window gimp
could both coexist together.
