Do you actually use that many perspectives in Eclipse? Maybe I'm not a
normal Eclipse user here, but I only use 2 perspectives all day. In
particular at least 3 of the standard perspectives are almost the same
and don't provide a real difference. As we don't provide a separate
perspective for each type of project or special file we're supporting I
don't think we'll have the problem of perspective-explosion like

Apart from that, isn't it clear how Tabs scale? At some point you get
left/right buttons on the tabbar.
