Yeah it's possible, but.. The whole point of the modeler is to shield people from having to
hand edit XML and because the modeler does that so well it means that average developers aren't
familiar with the XML structure and options.

Being able to open two models at the same time seems like a pretty reasonable thing to be
able to do.
