sessions. With your process, I would need to execute those three
steps each time I want to reorder. It's simpler to do the single step
of "Allow Reordering".
In either case, the _result_ of the reordering or restacking is of
course persistent between sessions. That's where I may not have been
clear. Whatever sequence the tabs are in will be saved for the next
session. It's just the "Allow Reordering" state of checked or on that
is not persistent.
An addition to the user Options would easily take care of this, by
allowing override of the default behaviour.
