I seriously hope that this NEVER becomes a default setting for Lazarus.

Anyone who seriously develops software, specially desktop applications, 
is/should be using at least two (better 3 monitors). And the "many" 
different windows allow easily to spread those out to those various 
screens as needed. One screen has the source code and associated 
windows, the second one the debugging windows, and the third one has the 
actually tested application screen.

Something like this would be a major PITA with those stupid docked 
windows. That's only something that makes sense for someone who's 
tinkering along on a laptop or such...
