issues of multiple windows at the same time that we discuss tabs, and I
still think that is a good idea. Since I am not volunteering to do any
development, I do not have much to say about when to implement these
features. Maybe it is right to have tabs in vim 7.0 and put off windows
until 7.2 or 8.0.

9 146 (-12) 32 -8 support multiple top-level windows for one running Vim
