Hm, on further thought. displaying source-editors to which you can not 
move/clone as "disabled" menu entry, brings up a few questions.

- Should the current window also be shown? (Since it is not "other" I 
would not show it.

It would remove a current optimization:

If a file already has an editor in every window, then they would have to 
be all listed as disabled.
BUT currently in this case, the entire sub menu is hidded, and the 
pop-up contains the only entry that makes sense "move/clone to NEW window"

Also showing disabled menu entries, is fine, if there are few disabled. 
But having 8 windows open, with 7 disabled, and 1 enabled.....

Having to think about
