Why dont we have instead of pre-named tabs, make the tabs nameable, and maybe even flexible in the quantity of tabs.
This would get rid of the wailing about "this tab got removed" etc.
And dont get me wrong, I miss it too, in fact, I now have installers smattered around the interface for lack of a place to put them.
TBH, i didnt realise it was gone as I have been so busy with working, i have not had time to play to organise things completely to my liking.
this is what I envision...
have X number of tabs (configurable)
and have y number of panes in each tab.
so, in the config interface X,Y where X=6 and Y=3 means the 3rd pane on the 6th tab.
It might be a bit of re-programming, but imnsho it should be doable depending on the schema that Nick is using now.
The beauty of this idea is that if you wanted to do a d7II config *just* for installers, you would see just 1 tab, with 1 pane, with all installers listed.
