In the Qt GUI, the Editor is a tabbed pane view (or whatever you call it in
Qt). It would be nice if the Editor supported a split-pane or
multi-tabbed-pane view, so you could view two or three files side by side. In
my experience, this is a common use case in larger code bases, where you have
to simultaneously modify two or more files which interact with each other, or
if you want to compare "before" and "after" versions of a function/class

The current tab-drag behavior for the editor is a little weird. (See attached
