  Multiple render jobs in a single instance

I think it could be a good idea to support multiple render jobs running 
in parallel in a single instance of POV-Ray. You could manage them like 
downloads in a download manager or bittorrent.

Why, do you ask? Because when running multiple instances it can get 
confusing as to which instance is currently running. Over the last week 
I've accidentally stopped a long render a few times because I clicked on 
the wrong icon in the taskbar.

Also, it resolves the issue where some files are open in one instance 
but not another, and POV-Ray does not correctly remember which files 
were open when starting a new instance.

Lastly, the "recent files" list at the bottom of the File menu may get 
messed up with all the separate instances.

I don't think this is a high priority, but I thought I'd throw the idea 
out there.
