Excellent!  Thanks.

So the first feature request collapse into the second one: having
elisp GTK bindings.  Then tabbar.el could use the standard GTK widget
for the tabs.  I think it is important to use standard widgets for
standard operations.  It give a consistent user interface across all
GTK applications.  Application-specific user interface designs have a
greater learning curve.
