Does it involve having  :
1) Modify password section to have tabs with all opened password files.
2) Modify behavior of resume attack and pause attack to have a drop down
list of all session and modify Johnny to handle that.
3) Modify Console log(since it's a QTextEdit), it'll output everywhere, so
it can't separate messages for each sessions.
And off course, logic to handle this.

I'm thinking about this right now because this will involve important
changes in the current design and code. It might be a big task. Since some
todos are related to settings, sessions or methods that will become more
generic etc.., I guess it would be a waste of time to do it in a way now
that would'nt be compatible with our vision of the future. So, I'm trying
to understand our future vision to avoid having a incompatible design.
