applications as the program manager (windows < 95) for example. IMO this
is a very restrictive way, since users can not freely move and sort
their windows to place them on seperate desktops for example. additional
to that, you take the window manager's control from these windows and
prevent keybindings, custom decoration, etc, from working.
But to the practical things: GTK is not able to do windows style MDI.
most applications use tabs instead, which are simpler and less
disturbing. this is also the recommended way in many GTK programming
