[Bf-funboard] floating windows don't stay on top!

Blender could store an 'always on top' setting for each window and map
this to each OS's setting.

Though this could get annoying if the window is ontop of all others
(non blender windows too), depends on how each system handles this.

I'm not against but seems low priority especially since overlapping
windows in blender are really not common use.
