Floating ViewpointControl Question

Hi Don and Jeff,

During the course of a McV meeting we began wondering about making ViewpointControls dockable, so I decided to look around the IDV sources.

I saw the various calls along the lines of "vpc.setFloatable(false)" and that the various data members I could use to get access to ViewPointControl.getToolBar() are protected, so I can't think of any reason why I couldn't just write a plugin that grabs the current VPC and enables floating/docking.

Does this assumption seem reasonable? Is there any reason that they aren't already capable of doing this? I ask due to the images in sections 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 of the user's guide looking like floating is enabled.
