I'm sure it will take some work but I'm not suggesting that *all* the buffers
buffers are displayed in tabbed windows, just as currently not all the buffers
are displayed in normal windows.

In terms of lisp interface, for example, there could be optional extra argument
to display-buffer which gets ignored if Emacs doesn't support tabbed windows
for the toolkit with which it has been built.
