Emacs is not limited by design to a particular set of window managers/systems,
let alone the current states of some particular set.  Or at least it should not
be - not by design.

IOW, if a user cannot currently cannot get this feature on window sytem WXYZ, so
be it (too bad).  That's not the same thing as hard-wiring Emacs to not provide
the feature.

Besides, is this true also for tool bars?  Depends on what is meant by a tool
bar, perhaps.  But (I think) I see lots of applications on MS Windows that have
multiple tool-bar lines (and multiple tool bars).
