These fancy looks with rounded corners should not be overrated.  They
have their disadvantages: fancy curves take screen space on both sides
on every tab, thus less tabs fit into the tab bar than now.  I guess
this is the reason why web browsers and other editors abandoned curves
for square shapes.  Chromium uses rounded corners only for the current tab,
and no shapes at all for other tabs, just separates them by a vertical bar.
Firefox uses a square shape for the current tab, and no special styles
for other tabs, only a vertical separator.  So currently tabs in Emacs
are already fancier than even in Chromium and Firefox.
