No.  We have no GUI features in TTYs, no menus, no scrollbars, no
dialogs, no toolbars, no images.  Nobody has ever asked for them,
either, not even for compatibility with Emacs.

To see what they do, try C-x C-f *.c in emacs/src/ (or maybe for
sanity's sake in lib-src).  The default configuration takes buffer
list and applies the filter "keep buffers whose major mode is the same
as the current mode", then truncates that list to at most ten tabs.

C-h a buffers-tab will tell you a list of functions and variables used
to implement the default configuration.
