While there is still sufficient screen real estate, tabs have the full filename and are as wide as needed. As soon as there is insufficient space, the tab widths start contracting, dropping out characters from the middle of the filename (replace with ... so that the abbreviation is apparent). I reckon you could go down to first 3 characters, last 3 characters and extension and still maintain uniqueness in most cases. You could even get clever and choose which characters to drop based on maintaining uniqueness. Have the full name available in the status bar, and everything's sweet. Of course, you'd still need to deal with multiline/scrolling tabs eventually.
Session management will kinda change with the upcoming version as it is now (finally) possible to close/reload LDraw files. This gives people the chance to keep the tab count low.

I will do some experiments to see if tabs are usable but I don't think it will be included in the 1.5 version, maybe 1.6.
