I'm not too fan of cluttering the screen with windows... I suppose I
could have a separate pane for the "global" view but I haven't found a
way to lay it out in a way that doesn't suck :-) I could have done a 3rd
colums on the right with the overall view but it felt like using too
much screen real estate.

I'll experiment a bit, maybe 2 windows is indeed the solution. But you
get into the problem of what to do if only one of them is closed ? Do I
add a menu bar on each of them to re-open the "other" one if closed ?
etc...

Don't get me wrong, I have a shitload of experience doing GUIs (back in
the old days when I was hacking on MacOS), though I'm relatively new to
GTK. But GUI design is rather hard in general :-)

Ben.
