Strictly speaking, Gtk has MDI: the Gimp offers a MDI interface, for
example. I think you are speaking about window in window (WiW), which is
a form of MDI.

The main problem with MDI/WiW is that it does not work friendly with
virtual desktops. What if I want one document on one desktop and one on
another? <troll>MDI/WiW is a not-so-good solution to have usable MDI
with the rudimentary windowmanager that comes with ms-windows.</troll>

Please, do not make the MDI/WiW the _only_ MDI system.
