I've provided a solution long ago, that hides all but the main form when
the application is minimized. On restore the hidden forms have to be
made visible again, that's all. The current IDE fails to leave
intenionally minimized windows minimized, when the main form is
restored. There exists no reason why anything but the form visibility
has to be changed, in order to hide forms from the taskbar.

See examples/dockmanager/ide_demo...

BTW, the minimize/restore part is independent from docking.
