I don't know if it was a reason, but it should have been:
Unifiying desktop and filemanager. Clicking on an icon on the desktop 
opens a new window. Same should happen in folder windows!

Too many options (IMHO). And DnD doesn't work nicely with tabbing.
And I would rather like to see tabbing implemented on WM level, 
than having it added to yet another app.
