*It is* choosable by the user, via System Preferences. Please see the original

If you fall into the last category you cannot expect that the commit is 
reverted thus prohibiting every other person (including me) from using the 
native tabs just because you want some esoteric behaviour.

What should have been clear from the discussion is that achieving optimal 
native tab behaviour on macOS is going to be a *multi-step process*. This is 
just the first step. You are of course welcome to submit your own patches in 
the continuation of this process.
