Ok, this is my second-favourite patch :)

A nice feature of Advanced Midnight Commander mc-4.1.x-MP by Olegarch was the dialog selector. It allowed the user to have multiple viewers and editors open along with the main file manager. They can be switched at will. Note that this does NOT imply multi-threading, because there's no point for editors, viewers and file-managers to run in background; they primarily need user interaction.

The hotkeys for Multi Screen feature:
"M-`" selector
"M-," switch to previous
"M-." switch to next

Yes, I know the hotkeys are not very well-chosen, but I really tried hard to avoid clashes with existing hotkeys. (I just saw M-. was taken in GIT, but honestly, I don't need a hotkey to switch hidden files on and off very frequently; I can live with just a setting in Options for that :))

Patch (against 4.7.0-pre1) attached.
