The backend work for this (to add a hidden preference to always open the 
calendar in a tab) is trivial, this could also be done fairly trivially 
in an extension.

The front end part, as always, would be controversial. You simply can't 
clutter up the interface with lots of options that reflect every 
imaginable way of doing something. I've never know how to resolve that 
issue - and it is not easy to get a ruling on issues like that short of 
doing the bug, and asking for a review.
