I think tabs could be very useful if controlled somewhat - I'm often 
toggling between 3 or 4 files, and while Ctrl+Tab works, some sort of 
circular buffer of tabs of the last 5 or so files might be useful.

But yeah, as long as it doesn't get as stupid as XCode 4's tabs.

Has any thought been put into putting the different widget areas of Qt 
Creator into QDocks? For the large areas (project tree, build outputs, 
code editing), being able to move things around would be a godsend, and 
it would provide a (admittedly not perfect) useful ability to use 
multiple monitors, which Qt Creator is sorely missing IMO.
