Another suggestion on this is to turn off the tabs, which you can do
by right clicking on them and selecting Hide Notebook Tabs.  This
replaces them w/ a menu.  Of course it's not a single click to change
to another file, but it's better than scrolling the tabs in the
current interface.

Also, when I do have tabs visible using the mouse wheel over them is
a quick way to scroll through them.
