I should add the approach uses the standard visibility settings of 
toolbars but instead of showing toolbars, shows tabs. So, if one sets a 
toolbar via View > Toolbars, one gets a tab that behaves accordingly, 
i.e. On makes it visible, Off hides it, and Automatic makes it visible 
under certain circumstances. However, with the tabbed/compact toolbar 
ui, it makes sense to set fewer toolbars to Automatic or even Off 
because there is plenty of space for additional tabs.
