Diego already said he would look into it.

There's no incentive in Blender to use overlapping windows. 
2.5 supports multi window setups mainly for dual (or more) screen layouts (and non rectangular layouts).

They use higher resolution 16:9 screens. It's obvious that layouts used at higher resolution will look bad at lower ones and at a different aspect ratio.

In future release, we can probably have a choice of default file on first run to choose between 4:3 screens and 16:9 screens (instead of design defaults for 16:9 only).
