Hi all,
Submitting a patch for  Bug 33293 for review. Please let me know if
you want me to improve some parts of it.

Once you are happy with it you can commit the patch under the terms of
MPL 1.1 / GPLv3+ / LGPLv3+
triple license.

To implement this feature request I have:
1.) created a new config tab page called "Initialize",were the user
can set the desired number of sheets to start with.
2.) created a new handler class  :ScTpInitOptions (tpinit.cxx/hxx) to
deal with this config item.
3.) modded the class (docoptio.cxx/hxx) to include this option
4.) modded ScTabViewShell class (tabvwsh4.cxx) where the number of
sheets actually are set
