So the original goal for window management was to use the traditional approach used in the original PhotoFiltre.
However the problem with the window in window type management is that Gnome does not officially support it.

Instead I have decided to use tabs as they have the following advantages:
- Officially supported by Gnome 3. (GTK3)
- More modern approach to managing windows – GIMP has switched to using them now.
- Easier to work with multiple images.

So as I have made this decision myself I would like some feedback from the community.
