What are you talking about ?

1.MDI interface have same properties/routines as Delphi
2.Only 2 widgetsets have their MDI implementaton (win32, qt)
3.For other's I've written mdiemulator (which basically works), but have 
problem with left/top positions, so handle part should be rethinked, so 
widgetset (gtk2, carbon etc) should create form + title and take care of 
client rect (without title bar of mdi).
4.One day (but that's *one day in future*) we'll have lazarus custom drawn 
widgetset (yes, something like fpgui , but more friendly to lcl), and then 
we can talk about implement everything in lcl.
5.MDI support just started, so don't expect that it'll be finished next week 
(it could be if someone provide patches).
