In there current version there is no possibility to see multiple pages at
once. But this seems to be a recurring request, so maybe we should look into

Both separate windows and split window could be implemented in python
branch. Would need some suggestions for how the UI should look then. E.g.
should a page in a separate page have navigation controls and a side pane ?
(I propose not.) What happens when I navigate to a page that is already open
? (I propose both windows can edit the page in parallel - so changes in one
window show up in the other as well..)

Any ideas? Bonus points for mockups or drawings.
