	Hah - voting !? ;-) we are a meritocracy.

	If you want it, and Kohei wants it, and (so far) no-one has screamed
against it, and:

	It is best-practise for thinking people; we should (IMHO)
"just do it" and re-visit as/when people scream. Seems to me it's no
more difficult to click '+' than it is to click 'Sheet 2'.

	So - volunteers to dig out the setting XML and change it
appreciated ? ;-) [ or further flameage etc. ]. It'd be nice to get the
sizing of that sheet-tab area right too - I'm regularly annoyed by
having the world's biggest horizontal scroll-bar (with nothing to scroll
to see), and yet having to fiddle around with tiny navigation buttons at
the bottom there ;-) [ there was an EasyHack to look into this IIRC ].
