Yes, as I wrote it seems that works better from my POV but just visiting four 
files truncates their name in tabs because tabs shrink when buffers increase. 
We need a scrolling mechanism to avoid this 'shrinkage'.

I build using emacs-master.tar.gz as source and my script has something like 

  make DESTDIR=/foo/inst install-strip

then it creates a compressed archive (a 'package') with the installation tree 
(the --prefix is something like /bar/Emacs). I use this 'package' to 
install/update Emacs on W10 Pro and Home. I have a task bar link to start 

Anyway, I am following this thread since it was born and my opinion is that it 
looks too complicated to use this kind of tabs. Do you really think that users 
not belonging to the set of developers will use them?
