Partly a window manager issue, partly a program issue; if the program
defines the children as belonging to the parent's window group, the
window manager should do the right thing when the parent is iconified. 
(If it doesn't, you need to get a better window manager.)

Many of us don't like Windows-style MDI.  Don't force it on us.
