Idea 7.0 debug windows

Please, please consider adding an option to restore the pre-7.x tab
setup. I run a resolution of 1600x1200 and it simply takes up to much
room having the console and variable windows open. You lose easily a
third of your editor space.

This really sucks.

And at the very least, stop forcing two clicks to detach the console and
don't have the detached console reattach to the IDE when you stop and
start debugging forcing ALL THESE CLICKS!!

And once again, consider NOT tying the debug buttons to the frame
windows. For those of use your use the mouse to debug, it is lame having
to see all these windows when they aren't used.

Try to avoid further restricting our choices. Consider a classic setup
if you feel compelled to change the UI.

Pretty close and pretty good! My only remaining item seems to be the
location of the debug buttons. I prefer them next to the "Resume
execution" button but that is most likely because I am left handed and
it is a kind of "spatial" thing with me.

The return of the tabs. That's UI refinement I can get behind.

My most sincere thanks!!
