While working on Boa, if i temporarily switch to another application (e.g. reading emails)
restoring Boa windows requires several clicks since each window is brought up separately (inspector, editor etc.)

This is even more annoying when working mostly with the keyboard.

long solution suggested:
Start Boa inside an SDI window

short solution suggestion:
on focus, return all "sibling" Boa component windows (inspector, editor, palette, etc.)

(working here on Windows XP, latest boa from CVS, python 2.5)
