I have to second that.  I guess it depends on how you use it, by my use model
*always* has *everything* in a single window with multiple tabs.  So the
question of "Which window does the new tab go into?" becomes silly.  It goes
into *the* window, since there's only ever one.  Now, I wouldn't mind if
external launchers open a new window by default, as long as there's a command
line switch (or something) to prevent it.  But my preference for 1-4 is all
"Open in new tabs, always.  Never, ever open a new window unless I explicitly
tell you to."

I also don't understand what you mean by 5, but if it's the "Always show
tabs/only show tabs when there's more than one open" then I really don't care.
I slightly personally prefer only showing tabs when there are several, but I
can get used to either very quickly.  Just as long as there's nothing that
forces me into more than one window.
