I think tabs make only sense when there are a few of them they all fit one beneath the other and you can have a fast overview of them. Think about the average windows control panel with 3 layes of 4 different-sized tabs and
this is NIGHTMARE.

I totally agree. Tabs shouldn't scale. If you stumble across several cases where you'd need such behavior for tabs you've certainly chosen the wrong interface. I just checked Apple's behavior (Panther) and they don't scale their tabs either (they just get clipped),
which indicates that they think quite similar about this issue.
