You might want to take a look at GdlDock (in the gdl module) which is
being used in anjuta2.  I wrote most of it, and while it may not cover
all the functionality you need, I plan to continue improving it.

It currently does the IDE-style type of docking you mention, but does
not manage toolbars/menus.  It was originally based on GnomeDock, but
has recently gone a major redesign.

Also, the Gimp 1.3 has a dock with similar functionality, though takes a
totally different approach.

As for GdlDock, I'm open to all kind of opinions (esp. wrt to the
overall design), and if you're interested I would be willing to work on
any changes you want to do to it.

Just my two cents,
