Hmm, do we want the tab-bar to be per-frame, or per-emacs-window?

As a user --- my thought is that a "tab" should contain a frame.
i.e., it's kind of filling in for a gap left by crappy X11 window

Coordination with the GNU desktop project here might help.


For "switching buffer" use of tabs, per-emacs-window seems like it might
be more useful, though obviously eating more screen real-estate.
[With such a setup, it would be useful to have "non-tabbed" and "tabbed"
emacs windows though I don't know how that UI would work...]
