    Well, in theory number of panes in the implementation isn't limited.
But in practice - management of them is. You know, PCManFM is the tabbed
file manager. You can mark one tab as inactive but what you will do with
three or more of the views, how will you know the correspondence between
tab labels and paned views when you have 8 tabs and 4 views for example?

Highlight the only active view? and use its title as the tab title?

I think it's not a problem if tabs are higher in hierarchy and each tab is divided into views.
But if there are tabs in each view - it could look confusing.
For not-tabbed file managers no such problem exists but for tabbed it is
there. Well, you can toss opened tabs between panes at will instead so I
believe that isn't worse than multi-split but rather more convenient.


    With best regards.
