I basically think that is sane. Tabs are good for viewing links we should 
encourage them if we think tabs are so great :p should probably do that for 
alt+click too. 

Also a solution to the tab bar problem is to put tabs at the bottom of the 
window with the statusbar inside of the tab. I hack my ephy to do this and 
like it very much. In this setup you can always show the single tab without 
really worrying about using too much screen estate since the tab isn't in 
direct view (ie you can hid it off screen if you choose).

See above i'm incline to say just go with tabs....

This would probably require egg-editable toolbar to use egg-dock instead of 
a hbox, so that toolbars could be moved around the window via dnd and next 
to each other etc.
