think about multiple gwindows (that is, windows in the GUI sense) for
gvim. From the user's point of view, a separate gwindow is a lot like a
separate tab that is displayed differently. A lot of the same issues
come up: should :windo and :bufdo act on the current tab/gwindow or on
all of them; which options should, by default, stick with a single
tab/gwindow; is there a separate command history for each tab/gwindow;
If you add up the votes for tabs and multiple gwindows on
(which is not to say that this is actually justified) you get the second
most popular RFE. I am not suggesting that we tackle both right now,
just that we pay attention to common issues.
