This will do it:

def toggle_toolbox_separate():
     """Toggle between moving the toolboxes to a separate window and
     the default single-window mode"""
     app = wingapi.gApplication
     import guimgr.prefs
     if app.GetPreference(guimgr.prefs.kWindowingPolicy) == 'combined-window':
       app.SetPreference(guimgr.prefs.kWindowingPolicy, 'separate-toolbox-window')
       app.SetPreference(guimgr.prefs.kWindowingPolicy, 'combined-window')
