The rationale behind the current behavior is 1) if you open a new file,
you can use cmd-option-left to get back to the previous file and 2) if
your tab-bar overflows, it's still possible to get tabs opened in the
visible portion of the tab-bar.
With regard to #1 then there's IMHO a further problem with opening a
file and closing it again, since it doesn't go back to the previously
open file. I've thought about changing the close-semantics (so that it
always selects the tab to the left of the one it closes, instead of the
one to the right) -- but I'm not sure I really like this.
I do have a neat solution planned for #2, but #1 becomes a problem if I
change the current behavior. I've seen the request for LIFO behavior of
tabs at the wiki (which seems to support the desire to keep #1), but I
need a concrete explanation of exactly how this LIFO behavior should
act, since only the goal is clear to me, not how to actually obtain it.
