[Gtk-sharp-list] MDI Application using GTK#

Gtk has no real support for MDI applications in the Windows sense. You can
easily approximate MDI by having documents open in separate tabs of a
notebook, but you lose the ability to arrange or tile them. On the other
hand, you could have the multiple documents in separate windows all together
(like GIMP and Inkscape). This gives more control but is generally
unfamiliar to Windows users.

Lastly, you could develop your application on an existing platform like
MonoDevelop. They have an excellent MDI system, but I think Windows support
is pretty sketchy right now.
