This seems better than splitting the window and displaying the
buffer list, as it currently does.  Tabs also have another
advantage: the startup screen is displayed in a separate tab,
so it does not interfere with editing input files.

But what if some users might prefer the old behavior?
Maybe to add a command line argument `--no-tabs'?

Like Forefox having command line arguments `new-tab' and `new-window',
I think Emacs should allow the user to choose whether to display the
file in the selected window, a new frame or a new tab.
