one approach is user-defined ui's (themes, or modes, as you will).

issue of "piling up an infinite amount" ? imho, a data structure containing a list of visible ui elements, etc., and their visual/size/location, etc., properties, is practical.

let's say ... when i create a new document, i can choose from one of my previously saved themes, or open with the default theme.

from there:

1) open a theme editor app, and let me create, save, modify, etc.

2) or, let me save the current ui config as a new theme ... of course that implies the user can modify ui element visibility as they work on a document. in the case of using docking windows, or, tear off tool palettes ... that's present.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
