A docking API is a good idea. I think Maciej had similar idea with his
ToolsAPI thing.
Dodi, I remember you patches were rejected because they did not work.
They were more like shooting around blindly.
The current code has one big benefit: it works. The problem scope is
complex and a good API may not be an easy task.
