In hopes of moving tdf#37124 along and suggest another MUFFIN feature  to support an MDI  -- Tabbed multi-document interface, was poking around in dark areas of source and found this gem [1]:


The GSOC 2005 project was for an extension, but a nascent framework exists already ( https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/offapi/com/sun/star/awt/XTabListener.idl ) [2][3].

Could we brush this off, and get it cleaned up with code pointers to encourage an ambitious dev or future GSOC participant to dive in?
