Bug Description

How to reproduce:
 * Install tiled
 * Start tiled
 * Press the small square button next to properties
 * That should undock the properties widget, make it a window and you should be able to drag it freely around the desktop, that doesn't happen
 * Alternatively, drag the properties widget from the "properties" text, you'll be able to drag it, but only inside the window, instead of around the desktop, and once you release it, you can't drag it anymore

To "reset" the docked status, remove ~/.config/mapeditor.org/tiled.conf

We are missing support for satellite windows.

summary: - QDockWidgets don't work at all
+ Missing support for satellite (Qt::Tool) windows

This actually goes deeper than simply supporting satellite window types.

Other issues being:
1 - we are forcibly killing windows that are closed. it's perfectly ok for an application to simply hide a window whose close button was clicked.

2 - this whole drag and drop behavior/interaction between the dockable satellite/tool and the main window is still to be investigated.
