Ah, you're making me nostalgic! ;-)  Every desktop has been playing
catchup ever since.

Every decent UI toolkit these days should provide the ability to
undock / drag out window elements.  I actually disagree with the idea
of multiple windows by default, I just want to be able to drag out /
undock the elements that make sense *to me at a particular time* to be
in a separate window.  That isn't a Zyn-specific point - using
multiple monitors it's particularly annoying to be forced to use a
single window.
