Hm, I "borrowed" the look & feel (actually, more the feel) from an IDE called 
IntelliJ IDEA. I didn't want to call it IDEA mode, and I think it is the 
ideal user interface for an IDE. But it has no real meaning besides that. Do 
you have a better proposal? I think that "tab zoom mode" is a bit clumsy.

Yes, I know. The problem is that at the time when the UI gets restored, the 
plugins have not been loaded completely. (The project specific are missing), 
so you have to select the right panel later. And if you don't use "Load last 
project on startup", the plugins might even not be there at all. I guess I 
can implement something that will "mostly work", and that should fix the 
other modes as well. I will put it on the TODO list.
