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

for me it woud be convenient to have some temporary windows on top of my
main 3d view, covering only small fraction for a brief time - like an
outliner window, or UV editor or curves editor. Existing behaviour with
splitting panes is good, also there already is option to Shift+click to
create standalone windows, but this does make sense only on second monitor.
This small addition of making window "stay on top" would be just handy
additional option for users who prefer it this way.

A little off topic - this is just ridiculous how much discussion and
arguing is going on about simple matters and about what is good and what is
not and defending lack of functionality by providing 5 step awkward
workarounds. (how can you even discuss left click vs right click if
99.999999% of all aplications ever created by humanity use left click to
select) That is just absurd!!!. And nobody is asking to change some core
ideas of the blender and make it a copy of maya. Almost all requests and
proposals can be done as additional options or first time defaults
therefore extending blenders existing capabilities and making it more user
friendly for people coming from other packages. Just respect the standards
and what majority of people want and like! You cant go against the world!
Old behaviour would still be there for those who like, but new users and
people with different habits would also be happy.
