This is OS X specific and weird in my opinion, if you want multiple windows
lauch multiple processes. It is safer, you can limit the impact of a crash
to a single window. It is also memory efficient thanks to (haters gonna
hate) dynamic link.

I sense an offensive tone here.
You should not feel aggressed, people here are hard to convince and stronly
opinionated, it is healthy. In this case your change is of no interest for
the original st because the plateforms it targets have the ability to launch
the same application multiple times, that's all.
