Totally support.  That is probably the one intrinsic advantage to the default 
view over single-window mode, you can tile multiple windows onscreen where with 
single-window/tabbed view you can only view one image at a time.  There are 
certain specific usecases to which having tiled onscreen windows is a 
necessity, and this simply CANNOT be done in single-window mode.

I've seen it before in word processors / etc. where they put a small divider 
bar icon next to the window's scrollbar, and you drag it onscreen to partition 
the window into two independent views of the same document tiled in the same 
window.  A means to do that in GIMP (tiling horizontally would probably work 
best, but either axis would be ideal) would be amazing.

Of course, there is a slight but substantial difference between having multiple 
tiled views of the same image vs. tiled views of multiple images...  hmmm....

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
