AW: AW: Tabs in Emacs?

Well, cause of Emacs' complex model with buffers, windows displaying buffers 
and frames displaying windows and on top window-configurations there is no easy 
answer, i have to admit.

But nevertheless i will make try:

IMHO tabs should an a frame-basis and each tab should display 
window-configurations, i.e. switching to a tab X should display exactly the 
window-layout and contents as X has contained when the user has left it
And each window of the window-configuration of a tab should contain it's 

Is this understandable?

Note that exactly tabs _should_ work in Emacs is actually quite
contentious (that's one of the reasons they haven't been implemented) --
Emacs has a significantly more complex model than most apps, and it's
not really clear the best way to map the usual sort of tab-bar onto that
model (read one of the long tortuous emacs-devel threads on this subject
for details I guess)...
