New tabs added on the right?

Hello!  I use kate as my main text editor for development and love it.  It
does _almost_ everything I need.  One thing that consistently bothers me is
that new tabs seem to get added on the left instead of the right.  Every
other system I use adds new tabs on the right.  Since most of us in the
west read from left to right, it makes sense to me that if I open a parent
class and then open a child class and then open a grandchild class, they
should be from left to right in my editor.

This bothers me to the point that I might even be willing to try and learn
a new codebase to make the change.  My main question is:  If I submitted a
pull request that swapped the order, would the "powers that be" accept it?
I could probably figure out how to add a config option to make it optional
even.  Just would be nice to have the choice.
