I've got a 15inch diagonal screen on my MacBook Pro and even though  
the Preview and Source windows overlap I'd never want tabs for them.  
Even the Console or Log shouldn't be in a tab since I want to see  
those windows along with the Source window even if they must overlap.  
In general I think tabs are a bad idea in this situation and they also  
uselessly take up limited space on my smallish screen.

Of course you can Preferences for all sorts of stuff but that just  
makes the Application more complex to set up and use as well as  
maintain since the possible combinations of choices increases  

Good Luck,
