exactely, got the same feedback, and even got the problem myself once :)

E/I, I/O :)
"File Operations", but that is not shorter... :)

right, I never used the drop/empty tabs yet: usually doing theses 
operations from the db_details_structure.php3 page, but maybe some
people won't like that...

But I do think there are too many tabs: what about merging "Operations"
and "Options" too ?     

Résumé of the suggestions:
- add an "Import" tab
- remove the Empty/Drop tabs
- merge Operations/Options -> "Operations"

Ok for everybody ? I guess not... let's see... :)
