Review request for KDevelop.


The area switching tabs is something that has bothered me quite a bit recently. It's something that is always visible in the screen and we barely use it. There's very little point to explicitly changing to an area, we usually do it from an action: debug, show differences, etc. These are specified by a new Area::addAction(QAction*) method.

This patch changes the current tab interface (inspired from Eclipse IIRC), for a button that tells the user what's the current area and where we can go.

The patch also removes the tabs and some unneeded abstractions in sublime/mainwindow that where only used by the tabs.

Been using it for a couple of days, seems safe.
