Entirely (un)dockable UI

Every part of Reaper's UI should be undockable and then again dockable to each other freely, depending on user's wishes and wanted workflow. For example, if the user wants Performance meter docked to the left of TCP instead of in the Docker, he should be able to do it.

Currently, there are some parts of Reaper UI that are fixed and aren't going anywhere. This should be changed in the future. Those parts are:

* Track Control Panel
* Main toolbar (currently linked to TCP, but this should definitely change!)
* Info bar (currently fixed below TCP)
* Arrangement area (Main view)
* Transport is currently available docked only to Main view, but this should also definitely change!
* Program toolbar and title bar are also fixed, and all other parts are connected to them (Main view, main toolbar and TCP).

In essence, freely customizable interface.

* MIDI Editor is currently dockable only in Docker. This should change, it should be dockable to any other GUI part/window
* Ditto FX chain window
* Video window isn't dockable in any way currently, this should of course change
* Newly introduced floating toolbars aren't dockable anywhere too, and this is going to be changed, as schwa said in one post

Now, please vote and let's make this an elevated FR :)

EDIT: freely docking the GUI elements should be possible across multiple monitors, of course!
