Part of what lead to that implementation is that I wanted to preserve
the current behavior of how the name instantly changes if you change
buffers or windows when you decline to manually name the tab. I
personally feel that not doing so is not a good user experience - it
makes it too easy for the tab name not to reflect the contents without
it being the fault of the user. That's what I'm worried about here. I
don't think that the automatic naming should go away, just that it
should peacefully co-exist with the user or Lisp programs wanting to
name a tab just so.

Other than that, I'm happy to wait a little bit to get the best possible
implementation for the benefit of everyone. Thanks for your attention
and encouragement on this. :)
