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.
