Can I at least have multiple sidebars with tabs being draggable between 
them (or make the message window a sidebar) ? :)

Currently Geany isn't so nice on a wide screen setup because much of the 
horizontal space is wasted, being bound to 80 or 100 column limit for 
source code. Vertical space is wasted because the message window could 
be a sidebar on wide screens.

Best regards.
