Actually, this reminds me of an issue I had while trying to fix tabs
in the Mac OS X/Quartz engine.

Basically, on MDI, the Mac "preference" tab mode, is pretty weird,
that's why Safari and Firefox have their own drawn tabs instead of the
typical tabs in a preference dialog. If we had a setting to let a tab
have MDI mode, that could solve the problem from the engine standpoint
I think.
