Does this mean that TM2 will now have the tab disaster that Finder and Safari have post-Mavericks?  Please say it's not so.  Apple's idea of how tabs should look was designed by an idiot.

Finder's tabs are unusable and Safari's are as well, but you really have no choice with Safari.  At least in Finder you can turn them off/disable them.

Mavericks wasn't great but at least they actually look like tabs rather than an UI element disconnected from the layer they're supposedly on.

I should mention that the current way we handle the styling for the tabs (as
NSImages) is not optimal since it doesn’t support desktop tint. The only way
I know how to properly support it is to add the tab bar as an accessory view
in the title bar (API 10.10) and change the `OakTabBarStyle` to use NSColor
instead of NSImage images.

I will drop 10.9 compatibility for the reworked file browser (next build), so I see no problem switching from images to colors for the tab bar (as you probably know, the images were to support the 10.9 tab look).
