I admit I can see a lot of use in a context (pop-up) menu in the
drop area of the toolbox, maybe with a button for it, as in the main
image window - it'd have a list of active windows to choose from,
and maybe the File menu.

The trend seems to be towards single-window with tabs, although
long-term I for one would rather see multiple windows with tabs.

Or, have only the window; if you press tab, the toolbox goes away.
The toolbox (it's not actually a toolbar) is just one of many gimp
There's something to be said for running multiple instances of gimp:
for one thing you get more control on where files are loaded and saved
on a per-project basis.
