Mmm.. on second thought, maybe this depends on how much do we want to
hide the inactive windows.

I mean.. what do we want to happen when a command is triggering an
event for an inactibe tab?
Do we want every event in a inactive tab to be ignored, or not ignore
it and  make all (or some) inactive tab events be triggered and (if
needed) sync the tabgroup?

if we don't want to ignore events for inactive tabs, then the idea of
synchronizing the depth/size/pos will make sense. But then we have to
think if the combination of different triggers for different tabs
could mess the tabgroup, and for syncing we will need to know what tab
activated the event, so that the other tabs can be updated accordingly
to this tab.
