Suggestions (and the occasional complaint) are pretty common here about tab 
management. I wish we had options for:

- Tab ordering alphabetical/chronological?
- New tabs on left/right?
- Keep no more than X tabs open / keep only tabs open that fit on screen?

This is probably my biggest frustration with using wing - being able to find 
my tabs.
