This works correctly on Windows (10), undocked environment.

I find it very useful also in undocked environment (where I tested). It 
is a must in a docked environment and the (probably biggest) reason I 
don't use AnchorDocking.

Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+Shift+Tab do not work when "Designer" is shown. (Win 10 
but as far as I understand this is platform-independent because these 
IDE commands are disabled when designer form is shown. They should be 
enabled when SourceWindow is focused/active (this will work both when 
dockedformeditor is installed or not).

+ Why the long name "sparta_dockedformeditor.lpk"? Wouldn't 
"dockedformeditor.lpk" be enough? It is in "sparta" directory so 
everybody sees the credits to sparta. And AFAIK there is no other 
dockedformeditor solution (if there is another one we should just 
maintain only one of them in the trunk anyway.)
