What are the events you envision for one and the same tab ...

Almost the same events as the events the notebook widget of GTK responds.

Quite so, one cannot attach all events of gtk+.

In this case, the 'response' must be defined as a lambda.

What is to be done: to insert C code , minimally, that execute the events when needed.

For console only, I did myself. For GTK and motif it should be even easier.

... and what is a "standard event" in this context?  And why can a
toolbar button not react to such a standard event in the same way?

Initialize tab, hide tab, show tab, kill tab, at least.

And window-local.  I think that for two different windows the sets of
buffers you might want to switch to would differ according to the
buffers shown in the respective window before.

Ya, right. A tab structure should be added alone , and a ponter to a such tab struct must be present in every structure of frame, buffer, window.
