This seems reasonable to me, though I wonder how we would handle the
internationalization of the text. Would we force everyone to use the
English tab names or their local language equivalent? If we use the
local translated string, which seems reasonable to me if we're making
the change, then we need some way to make sure the user puts here, for
instance, Struktur instead of Zusammensetzung. I'm not sure that it will
work well to write in the documentation "Use here the string text that
appears as the link in the tabs across the top of the page, for instance
in French use 'Structure' or in Italian 'Struttura'." Doing so would
also break installations where one user uses English and another user
prefers Tamil.

The more I think about it with that in mind, the more I think we'd have
to force everyone to use the English language link text.

Is this worth doing? If so, I can work on it.
