I don't know if that would ever work with the Guicast of Cinelerra. 
Adobe and also the other NLE's like Kdenlive work with subwindows. These 
subwindows can be arranged arbitrarily, but also separated from the 
compound and function as real single windows. Cinelerra has only single 
windows that cannot be combined in one window. I myself would wish only 
one icon in the taskbar.

One possibility would be to use a framework like Qt5, it is even cross 
platform capable, that means it runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. With 
this framework we wouldn't have to worry about such things anymore. But 
such a port would certainly take three to four, if not five months. In 
this time no new updates of Cinelerra would come. I could live with that 
if I didn't get any new updates for the next months. Waiting for this 
new version would reward the new possibilities by far.
It would be cool if Cinelerra would also be available on Windows and Mac 
and the GUI problem would be solved, it would be the future, or there 
would be a developer who dares to approach the Guicast and bring it up 
to date. GG would certainly be happy about such a support.
