Split Main Window (File Info, Equalizer, etc.)

I use a 22" widescreen monitor with a resolution of 1680x1050, and thus the main window in Winamp has a lot of unused space (highlighted in red).

I was wondering if it would be possible to be able to split that part of the window and add other elements to it, or in some other fasion be able to have the Equalizer on the right side while keeping the File Info component on the left.

Bento is a single user interface skin,, try using a different skin, even Winamp Modern which is still included with the install.

I don't mean that I want to split up the skin into multiple windows, I just want to be able to see the File Info and the Equalizer at the same time.

bento was only ever designed as an all-in-one design so you'd either have to make a new skin/massively edit the bento skin files to make a splitable version.

i would love this too, the "main" area has 5 different selectable items, so if it would be possible to have two or more "main" screens, one could easily choose what is shown in which "main" area.

i tried searching skins and it's quite hard to find something decent, due to lack of quality control. there hundreds of 1999-winamp2-lookalikes, many advertisement-skins and a bunch of alien no-rectangles. not good replacement for a classic like bento.
