Tab support as experimental feature in 1.3.4 ?

Hi Scott,

About two weeks ago, we talked a bit on IRC about adding tabs to
1.3.4. I'd like to bring up this topic again.

I think that it's a good occasion to add tabs. Mark the feature in
sawfish-ui as "(EXPERIMENTAL)" next to the check-box which enables it.

If enabled, current theme will be checked if it supports tabs, 
if not - the user would be informed somehow to pick another theme. It
can be quite a rudimentary dialog box or prompt or whatever - it will
be experimental, after all.

The main point is to LET more people test it.

On a side note, uh.. do you think that you could modify mxflat theme
to be tab-enabled? That's my favourite theme for about 4 years ;-)
I'd feel really comfortable testing tabs without changing theme. And
also I know this theme quite well, so I'd know if something is a
theme-related problem or a tab-code problem. But this is much less
important than just adding tabs as experimental feature.

How do you feel about that? What do others think?
