Thinking a bit more about this, I realized that this would improve a lot
the way we switch tabs using the keyboard. The current aproach
(Ctrl+PgUp/Ctrl+PgDn) requires that you visit each tab before reaching
your destination. This is painfully slow. In machines with little
memory, this usually involves swapping in and out a lot of data.

My idea for the MDI apps is to implement something functionally
equivalent to the "Windows" menu (in the menu bar) of Micros~1 MDI
applications, but more associated to the Notebook widget. Maybe inside
it. This would make the change transparent to most apps.
