commonly has is to access minimized windows inside a mdi interface buried by
other windows (which is not the case) and to tile windows.

well, maybe this could be easily resolved (don't know, not a skillful
programmer) with some global keyboard shorcuts (that work in any window).
that could improve usability without undergoing ui surgery, leaving that as
a separate thing for discussing at another time. something like...
ctrl+shift+m main window
ctrl+shift+c command window
ctrl+shift+h help (global version, keeping h for compatibility)
ctrl+shift+s session window
ctrl+shift+t tile windows (same on xp as ctrl+clicking several buttons
on the taskbar, then right clicking and selecting tile vertically or tile
ctrl+shift+u bring all windows up
ctrl+shift+k only keep active window visible
ctrl+shift+p pin window (keep active window always on top)
ctrl+shift+pgdn next window
ctrl+shift+pgup previous window
