currently you are only allowed to view a output window at a time.

In many situations it would be great to have more than one output window viewable at a time as alternative to the
consoles organized in tabs. For example when testing server-client applications.

suggested implementation:
-make console tabs dragable
-on drop wrap console into a output window component or add console as tab if drop target is already a output window
-on new console requested, add console to the output window with the fewest tabs
-Window | Output | Output (Ctrl+4) opens a additional output component
