I don't thijnk so. I have not used winring.el, but it looks like it
can name window configurations. However it is not a part of Emacs.

None of them can save and restore window configurations from file
which I think is essential. I am thinking about adding that to
winsav.el. Most of it is already there, but I do not remember how far
we got with a printed representation of window configurations. Anyone

I think it is more essential than tabs. It can be used without tabs
and it enhances tabs.
