I have 3 monitors on my MacPro and even when using my MacBook I usually attach a second window, with XCode 3.x I can arrange everything nicely so I can see more than once source file at once and still have a debugger window open. I have never enabled the "one giant window,with lots of separate panes" on XCode 3 and it is scary to think that I might be forced into using it under XCode 4.

This is my biggest gripe. I hate all-in-one UIs, too.
Xc4 has some support for opening new windows for things, and trimming down most of the chrome. But the window is still the full window Xc4 uses, and it's easy to accidentally open up some pane you don't want. This I can live with
What I don't like is that navigating from one source file to another doesn't just go to the already-open window. This is where Xc4 breaks down, in terms of supporting multiple, separate-window use.
(That, and that you can't have just the left-hand pane in a window without anything else).
I've written bugs about this, and they've come back as "known issues," so I hope they're working on it. Until then, Xc4 is very cumbersome for me to use.
