      Use buffers, or split windows, or tabs, with the understanding that:

      A tab contains any number of windows
      A window shows a single buffer
      A buffer can appear in any number of windows (even zero) in any number
      of tabs

      What Simon is pointing out, is that "tab" is a bad name for the "tab
      pages" in Vim, because users expect them to act like tabs in other
      text editors, where you are locked into a single file per tab, and
      only one tab per file. In Vim, a tab-page is really more like a
      "workspace" which you can use for a large variety of things.

      See http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Tabs for some ideas and details.
