sure I can, but that is not what I want. A little example:
I have an eeepc of the first generation with a very small display. But I
want the editing area to be as big as possible. So I detach all the
dialogs. If they are not always on top, I can switch between them with
<alt>+tab, what is very fast.
If I close all the dialogs, I have to use the mouse to reopen the needed
dialog, what forces a rebuild of the drawing area and the dialog space.
That is - at least on a non high performance PC - annoying slow.
And as I have already written, we can make this option user
configurable, so it would harm any one :-)
