I agree that they look best for most cases. I would like to see a (future)
expansion where dragging the docker from the document-space will create a
toolbar (or QDock) so it is allowed to float outside the main window though.
If you move it to the kofficelibs, also take a look if the dockers can be
moved/duplicated between views. Its nasty that after a 'view->split view'
you have to re-add all your dockers in the new view.
Also; please take good care in making the API better; the APIs I have seen
from kivio in the past are really not that great..

I'm not technically familiar with KOffice anymore; perhaps someone else
has problems with this, so don't see this as an OK just yet :)
