I'd be screaming bloody murder if somebody removed MDI from Opera or my IRC
client. I don't see any way of getting the functionality I use without MDI
or a complete reimplementation (multiple windows that I can rearrange
inside a larger container at will, where the windows can freely overlap).
Tabbed interface comes close, but it doesn't let you have side-by-side
windows (plus, both MDI applications I use daily also provide a tab bar for
the child windows).
