In working on a "non-laptop" system with a not-large display, I find 
the ability to "page" among multiple panes to be invaluable.
[I typically set up virtual desktops for this purpose - for me that 
is simpler than moving the focus between windows all on one screen.]


I realize that OLPC is resource-limited (particularly main memory), 
but please try to keep in mind the desirability of a long-term goal 
being support of a "human interface" with multi-pane-capability.

Especially in the browser, I think being able to 'flip viewing back 
and forth' between two previously accessed panes  is preferable to 
only having 'go back' and 'go forward' buttons on a single pane.
