That should be the default in a tab-capable Emacs when more than one
file is specified.

Again, I don't see a necessity for a new option.  If Emacs is configured
to open a new frame, all given files should appear in tabs of this
frame.  If not, all given files should appear in tabs in the existing
selected frame, in front of existing tabs.
