I have a graphical editor and I wish that, to edit some parts of it, a new editor instance is opened. The child editor is autonomous (the parent editor just provides it with a proper IEditorInput), can be textual or graphic. It's behaviour should be "modal", in the sense that the parent editor is blocked while the child editor is active (opened). Only one child editor can be active for a parent.

I don't care much about how this behaviour is implemented UI-wise (i.e., whether the child editor window is inside the parent window, or whatever).
Does this sound feasible?

MultiPageEditorPart does not seem very apt for this behaviour, I'm looking now into AbstractMultiEditor but the docs are rather scarce

Any ideas, examples or pointers would be welcomed.
