Eclipse does not allow to dock views into the editor area either. The
only things that you cannot achieve out of the box with QDockWidgets and
QMainWindow that Eclipse can do are the fast-view bars - that'll require
some extra code to be written - and multiple "lines" of dockwidgets
side-by-side (thats probably not possible even with some extra code).
