Thanks :)

There is a long history of moving tabs from top to the left and back, so it 
should be quite simple to replace the recent QListWidget once more with 
QTreeWidget, but...

You aim at a complete gui revolution, what deserves for a broader discussion.
Note that besides plugins, also styles, customization etc should be 
integrated. Well, personally I'm happy with separate windows. But even within 
the present Options dialog a tree could be reasonable to make the tabs less 
crowded... I'm not fully convinced to this idea, because I like the 
possibility to fold the list to icon-only mode. With more and more tabs it 
would become useless.

Anyway, such significant GUI revolution should be probably done either before 
2.0 or wait for 3.0... And I guess we release the 3.0 in maximum two years.
