Good to know; so let me refine: is there ANYTHING in the move to
single window which would not be achieved by
a) restricting the maximal size of image window to the gap between
two toolboxes; and
b) making z-order changes syncronized between the main window and
(I mean: whenever z-order of main GIMP window changes *wrt non-GIMP
windows*, the z-order of "dependent" windows changes accordingly.
Same for toolboxes: similar changes in THEIR z-order should be
reflected in the z-order of the "current" image window)

2.6.6. Tested on Windows. Examples:
a) Press TAB (toolboxes disappear);
Press TAB (toolboxes reappear, focus on "Layers");
Press TAB - now you navigate "Layers" toolbox.
b) Focus to Layers. Press F11. Nothing. Press o. Nothing. Press 4
(user configured to "1:4 zoom"). Nothing.
