Created by Bryce Harrington and last modified

Several bug reports (e.g. #324254, #341871, etc.) propose additions of new panes to the gtg UI. Betrand recommends these types of things be implemented as separate tabs, and there seems to be a consensus sharing this design approach.

This branch places the three principle UI panes into three notebooks, which will enable plugins to append and remove a page. The design approach is inspired from gedit. When there is only one tab active, the tab selector is hidden; this way the default UI (with no plugins) looks absolutely identical to how it does now.

For an example plugin demonstrating this tab functionality, see my 'metrics' branch.

Note that this branch is a pre-requisite for the associated bug reports, but is not aiming to solve those bugs completely; it merely puts one infrastructural element in place that they need.

Some other potential ideas for things that might want to go into tabs:

  * A 'debug output' plugin
  * Sync plugin status info
  * Alternate views
  * Search results
  * "Tip of the day" plugin
