whereas wholesale changes can be a bear to debug.

in nature, but that's rarely a necessity unless we're moving around
large pieces of functionality. Just cleaning up a tab can be done
individually, and deciding if we want to use a tab and/or menuing to
generate PCGen's output doesn't impact much of the gui so it can be
done in a fairly isolated manner as well. I like the idea of the
preview tab becoming a kind of automatically-updated statblock that
updates itself everytime you view the tab. I would like to be able
to generate output files in the least number of clicks possible -
which may mean using a combination of menus & tabs.
