One solution[1] to this, which I've kicked around for a while, is to 
make the button area on the right of the tab bar an external toolbar. 
That way, people can customize that to put whatever buttons they want on 
there from the main toolbar.

This means that we could keep the UI like it is now, and if people don't 
like the tab bar, they could hide it and put the buttons up on the main 
toolbar; or, if they really want, they could put the main toolbar 
buttons on the tab bar.
