He's talking about 'splitter view', when you drags the splitter bar down so
you can look at two different sections of the same document at once.

VS does this (as does Word, Excel etc) so you can look at the top part for
your module and the bottom at the same time.  Dunno if synchronised
scrolling works on split windows.

I've never found it all that useful, usually your code is in short chunks so
scrolling isn't a problem if you want to see other bits of it, or you're
comparing two different documents.  Looks like it falls into the 80% unused
= bloat area.  :)
